Papertrey Ink July 2014 Blog Hop Challenge

If it's the 25th, it's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

This month's inspiration photo had so much going on - I tried to capture several elements in this submission for the hop. I just loved the little bird in the photo, as well as the banner and red plaid cloth pocket. I had so many ideas for this hop, but had time for only a couple cards.

Here is my first project:

A close up of the sweet little bird. I used a Memory Box die, PTI DP, and free cut the wing which is stamped with Garden Elegance.  HAPPY is from Wet Paint Cuts, which is cut apart and coated with Glossy Accents. The banner is free cut from PTI DP and card stock. For the tiny roses I used a rolled flower die from Impression Obsession. The long banner die with bows is from SSS. And the doily I confiscated out from under a cup of coffee at one of our favorite local eating establishments :)
And a close up of "birthday" die cut, which is "shadowed" with Red Poppy Cardstock (Thank you Betsy V for the lesson on that one :). Aqua Mist card base impressed with Canvas Impression plate.

Supplies:
All supplies PTI (except as indicated).
