A New Calendar Tag

Back from a few days away and have to catch up with the latest calendar challenge from the Craft Barn Challenge. The theme this week is Pink and Birds.

I cut my tag in pink cardstock then stamped the floral corner stamp in Vintage Sepia ink. I then edged the tag in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick distress inks.

The birdcage was cut from the Songbird cartridge with the Cricut and stained with Vintage Photo Distress stain. I then coated it with Distress Crackle paint in Rock Candy. The bird is a wooden embellishment from Kaiser that I painted with gold paint.

The flowers were sprayed with Tattered Angels Cherry Blossom and fixed with a brad. I put kindiglitz on the brad to make it sparkle. The leaves were punched from green cardstock and layered underneath the flowers. Finished it off with seam binding ribbon coloured with Spun Sugar distress ink.

I am entering this in the Think Pink Challenge at Whimsie Doodles this month as well as it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Postscript: Just found out that this tag won the challenge for this week at the Craft Barn! Rapt!!
