Forgotten Friday

Some time last year Judith started a challenge called Forgotten Friday but had to abandon it temporarily to look after her menfolk - welcome back!  The idea is to make an item  using something which you've had for a while but has perhaps lain neglected and unused.  For this card I've used something new with something 'forgotten'.  The background paper is from a Papermania pad which I must have had for at least three years and I can't remember the last time I used one of the pieces;  the bird is a Stampin Up punch which I've had a while and dug it out again to use when I got a matching stamp set to give the bird body some detail - the same thing with the flowers because there was a flower stamp to match a flower punch too. The circular frame is a Marianne die cut. The sentiment is a stamp from Elusive Images which I recently rediscovered when I was going through my stash of stamps seeking inspiration.

Get Funky Challenge

I decided to have a go at the monthly challenge from Funky Hand.  The theme is circles and they are giving away a suitable background paper download although you don't have to use that.  I decided I would use the paper and managed to find some bits and pieces of card in my stash which are a reasonable  colour match. The image is a digi one also from Funky Hand, coloured with Copics; Marianne and Cuttlebug dies were also used and a border punch from stampin Up.
