New White Out for the Love Birds with a Tag

:) What do you think? Am I getting kinda creative with the post titles? lol ;)

Well... I'm trying to make it easy on myself. This is how I can go back and find out if I got anywhere with my card. :)

So... this card is for five challenges... *GASP!*... YES! I'm feeling VERY brave these days... ;) ... and these are the ones I am participating in...

Meljen's Designs Design Team and Challenges is having Challenge #143 - White Out... and it IS indeed a challenge! I kept wanting to add color... then... I didn't know where to stop with the embellishments! I kid you not... I was on the verge of using white flock... but I made myself stop! :) lol I used a Meljen's Designs image... a freebie called Love Strung Birds

I am also entering this card at Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge Blog in Challenge #30 - For the Birds. In order to participate in the challenge, I have to use a bird image. I am using a bird image! :)

Then there's Crafting for All Seasons Challenge Blog Challenge #43 - Something New. I am taking that to mean using something new... the Meljen's image and the Fiskars' corner punch are new. :)

Raisin Boat is having Challenge #7 - Love is in the Air and the card needs to be love themed... I'm thinking the card covers that too. :) 

Finally, Delightful Challenges by Digital Delights is having a Weekly Challenge - Tag You're It. This challenge requires a tag on the project. I did use a tag! :)

Since this was a white out challenge and the image could have used color, I opted to use shading instead. I was pushing the limits for myself... so I don't really have a colored image to show you... kinda... so here's the card:

I added color to the digital and stamped images with Copic markers in N00-Neutral Gray, R20-Blush and Y02-Canary Yellow. I used an embossing folder from The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby and Robin's Nest dew drops. The card stock, ribbon and tag are from my stash. The stamped heart on the tag is from a clear stamp set Love Letters at Raisin Boat. The corner punch is from Fiskars. 

So... once again... I'm all giddy! lol I hope I got all the bases covered with this card. I'm having a heap of fun doing these... more than I thought I would. I really did think it would be difficult and stressful but instead... as long as I can keep a Window open with the challenge I am wanting to use... it is working out OK... so far!! :) lol

Thanks for stopping by! Please, leave a comment so I'll know you were here. :)
