Well hello again, Liz here hoping that everyone is back in the swing of things and getting lots of scrapbooking done.
This month’s challenge was set by Mel and such a great Challenge, certainly one to get the mind working overtime, lucky it is holiday time!!!

The challenge that was set is as follows:-

*Layout Theme :- "Looking Forward, Looking Back" ( You must use these words somewhere on your layout).
*Non traditional shaped layout.
*Must have :- Buttons, Ribbon, and at least 1 other embellishment.
*Quote for Inspiration :- (You may or may not choose to use this on your layout) "I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination." (James Dean).

I was lucky enough to have received the beautiful collection from SCRAPBOOKIT from Kaiser ‘Hummingbird’.  I made a large tag to team with the beautiful bracket die cut.  Distressed Core’dinations cardstock and used the collections Alpha, Stickers and die cuts.  The bird cage is a sticker which I mounted on cardstock and then cut around.

Mel’s card challenge was :-

Non Traditional shaped card;
Must use 2 patt. Papers, paint, masking tape and of course flowers!!!! Just for me LOL.

So here is my card, I chose to do a ‘slide’ card, this card gives you the chance to do some sewing to encase the inner message card . I used masking tape on the tag and then painted & modge podge it.  I used flowers with the button on the ‘pull up’ tag.

And I hope that you like it  this photo shows the inside of the card after it is pulled open.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you are inspired by what the team has shown you and look forward to seeing  all your entries.
Until next time……happy scrapping…….Liz 
