From The Heart Progressive Challenge


I absolutely love Faith Skrdla’s images and try whenever possible to take part in the Progressive Freebie challenge over at From The Heart Stamps. This month we were given the Birthday Candle Birdbrain set which came with oodles of sentiments. This card has been made with a friend in mind who has a quirky sense of humour, is about 10 years older than me and we have known for many years.


I have used the current sketch at I{heart} Sketches for the layout.
The image is coloured using Promarkers and Flexmarkers and mounted onto a scrap of black card which is recycled from embossing folder packaging. I mounted the image and the sentiment on the same way and added 3d foam for dimension.

The card front is covered with a paper from the Birdsong pack from Papermania. The yellow spotty one is from Craftwork Cards. Used some thin green card for punching along the top edge and added some gorgeous spotty ribbon that was part of a prize I had recently from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Finally I added some red buttons with yellow waxed cord knotted through them.

Eventhough February is the shortest month I have been better organised than I was in January so not finishing it off right at the last minute. That’s progress compared to last month!

Materials Used in this Project are as follows:-
Card size – A5
Digi Image & Sentiment – Birthday Candle Birdbrain by From The Heart Stamps
Paper – Birdsong by Papermania & Craftwork Cards
Tools – Fiskars Treading Water punch
Embellishments – Buttons & Twine
Techniques – Punching, recycling


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
