Inspired by All the Little Things

My bloggy friend LeAnne Pugliese is featured at this week's Inspired by All the Little Things Challenge #31.  Now how could I not be inspired to play cards with them this week?  This face! 


 
 
You only have to take a look at the design team's cards,
and you will instantly be inspired, too!
You girls got me right out of my comfort zone ... look at me getting all layered up, and distressing, too!!!
 
PTI Chickadee, Altenew sentiment, various embossed images from
Winnie & Walter's In Bloom: Elsa's Flora - quickly becoming a favorite!
They were PERFECT to create a few elements from the photo!
Oh... and Dad's hammer came out to play today, too, for a bit of random embossed dots
 always fun =]
I have surely enjoyed digging through my box of Christmas papers ... everything is looking brand new to me!
 
Thanks for the visit today ... it always makes me smile!
 
 
=]  Michele

Great take on LeAnne's inspiration. That little Chickadee is such a delight, and I love all those layered greens and blooms. Wonderful card! You should do this more often; you're quite good at it you know... And I do so love that sentiment. Well done you!! Bev

You really are branching out, Michele. (no pun intended) This is a lovely layered card.

Look at you is right! For a moment I thought I was at Kay Miller's blog with all those fabulous layers :) Such a sweet bird and I really LOVE your Poinsettia with all the lovely greenery and berries...not to mention those fabulous musical notes! You really nailed it, my friend...your card is stunning!!!

This is just gorgeous!!! Your little chickadee amongst those beautifully-embossed florals just makes this card sing! And what a fabulous background....as well as your hammering skills! Truly unique! After today, we all might need hammers to bang away our frustrations!!!
