DCC523 ~ Three Elements Challenge

Good Evening Ladies,
Once again I am blogging at night. Life has really gotten busy. I find I am much better if I create daily. My muse tells me it must get out and that life is too short.
I have created an entry for the DCC523 ~ Three Elements Challenge over at the house that stamps built. Here is the link to  the challenge....
The requirements are...
Stamped image
Die Cut or Punch
I think I have them covered. Here is my card.....
To create this card I stamped the bird bath image from Repeat Impressions on Bristol Board. I then colorized it with Prisma pencil and Gamsol. I cut it out. The birds are die-cut using a Memory Box die. This die was perfect for the bird bath. I added a second die which is the floral oval. This die is from Cheery Lynn designs. The background is printed card stock from my stash. I ran it through the big shot with a sizzix embossing folder. The flowers are prima with rhinestones for centers.
This bird bath was on an unmounted sheet from Repeat Impressions. I did not know what I would ever use it for. But this challenge came up and it was just what was needed. Don't discount any stamp that you think you would never use. This challenge got my juices flowing for this stamp. It will become a favorite stamp for me I'm sure.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
