CHD Challenge Blog 15 August 2021 Start Date using Cute Chickadee image from CHD

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog!!! My artsy-crafty heart is thrilled to be able to use this digital image that Mary created in 2018. Mary is half of the dynamic couple that own Createful Heart Designs. The CHD challenge blog has "anything goes" theme/non-theme so I've decided to use the image for a birthday greeting card.

Seize the Birthday challenge blog; Stripes is the topping option and 1 of the button stickers and border sticker have striped patterning; 


2. Use Your Stuff challenge blog; theme is real life; My card's image reason for why I selected it was due to the primary classroom teaching decorating scheme I have of merging the 4 yearly seasons with birds picked. At first I was going to stick just to picking at least 3 birds for each season such as crows, owls, and turkeys for autumn season however now that I got very recently hired for 1st grade, I'm adding in some wildlife creatures for "First Grade Forest Friends". So birds have been on my mind lately. This card I think will be sent to a cousin who is battling breast cancer and has a September birthday. I hope it will cheer her up.
