A Little Bird with a Big Song

I have one last post for today my friends!!! It has been a very creative week and it feels so good!!!The joy that creating brings to my soul therapeutic and healing! Like Jerry Van Amerongen said, "I feel like a tiny bird with a big song!" and I want to share that song with you today! I hope you all get the chance to create this day or in the days to come and may the melody be sweet to your souls!!!

This project was made for the Make it Monday Challenge. The challenge is to use a Vellum Sentiment Strip. I haven't used Vellum since my daughter's wedding which was over four years ago. I love these challenges! They make me get out of my box and try something new!! I was also challenged by my friend Cathy to use the hand image from the Love Lives Here set. Thanks for the inspiration Cathy!!!
For this card, I used the Fillable Frames #1 stamp. I stamped the framed image first and I added the flourish stamp from the Mat Stack I Collection and cut the tag and flourish out as one piece. I created my own patterned paper using stamps from the Mat Stack I Collection.
I embellished the tag with a die cut and glittered hand from the Love Lives Here set, ribbon, Prima Floral, died seam binding from Memrie Mare, Tim Holtz ribbon, Kaiser Craft pearl, buttons, and a scalloped edge cut with the Banner Builder Die. I stamped the sentiment onto the vellum with Dark Chocolate ink and hand-cut in the shape of a banner.

Thank you for allowing me to share my love of crafting with you!!!
I sincerely appreciate each and every one of you!!!
Have a wonderful evening!

This is really pretty, Kristii. I would have to really dig to find some vellum in my stash. And yeah for creative weeks, they really feed the soul don't they?? And if I haven't mentioned before, I love the new blog setup! Looks awesome!!

Something told me that today would be the day I see your "hand" project! I got my Love Lives Here stamps today. I love your card. The hand is beautiful with the little stick pin in it. You always use so many beautiful things that work so well together. Very good idea to cut out the frame and flourish together. Would never have thought about that. Thank you so much for the inspiration using this set. I plan on making something with it this weekend.
