DT card for Craft Us Crazy

Thursday begins our 17th Challenge at Craft Us Crazy. We would love to have you join us. We are looking for creations that say "Goodbye to Summer (summer themed) and/or School themed. My card is full of birdies who seem to be saying "Goodbye to Summer" in their cute little tweet voices. LOL It's actually still summer here in southern California. I am so looking forward to Fall & Winter. You can see from my blog design how much I adore sweet little birdies. They always make me smile. I also love, love, love vintage images & anything by Crafty Secrets screams "vintage".

I followed this sketch from Sketch Saturday. Can you see the little brass staples I added for the 3 vertical lines on each side at the bottom. My card was already so 'busy' that I didn't want to add more ribbon or baker's twine so I thought the staples would fit well.

I used Crafty Secrets Birds & Blossoms paper. It's so colorful & chockful of images for your crafting needs. I added acetate butterflies & flowers from K & Co. and seam binding from Wild Orchid Crafts. The other embellies are from my stash. The back layer of DP is from Bearly Mine Designs.

I'm also entering these challenges:
Papertake Weekly: Things with wings
Flutter By Wednesdays: Must have wings
The Pixie Cottage: Fussy & Fancy (lots of embellies)
