Joan's Challenge Make a Scene

Good Morning Ladies,
Another Monday is upon us. I had a nice relaxing weekend. Now on to the new week.
I have created a card for Joan's Challenge Make a Scene
The requirements are as follows:
Make a vintage card
Use a bird
Use a scenic patterned paper
Use a die for your sentiment
Use a product sold at Joan's Gardens
So I had to think about this one awhile. What to do. Then it came to me, use Graphics 45. So here is my card......
I picked my favorite Graphics 45 pad that I purchased at Joans. It is the secret garden collection. I used the 8 x 8 pad. I am not always sure what to do with the wonderful scene that is the first two sheets in the pad. This is the perfect challenge for those sheets. I cut this one up and used three different parts of the scene. The background is from the companion 6x6 pad. I added little brown birds cut from  the Memory Box die Resting Birds #98527 that I purchased at Joan's. One little bird is placed in the little girls hand. For my sentiment I used the Just Rite Clear set Ever After Antique Labels One. This can be purchased at Joan's. I stamped it on a die cut from Spellbinders ss-109 Vintage Lace Motifs. These can be purchased at Joans.

This is the inside of the card. I can't see letting Graphics 45 paper go to waste. I added the extra pieces from the front on the inside of the card. My sentiment inside is stamped on the Just Rite Custom Die JB-03830 Antique Labels One Dies. The sentiment is from TPC.

There is still plenty of time to join in.
Another great challenge Joan and Selma. Thanks for giving me one more idea on how to use the wonderful Graphics 45 pads you sell.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
