DCWV January 2013 Stackaholic Template Challenge Card

My card got top 10 on DCWV blog!

A little Just Because card  for the new year's 1st Stack a Holic Template Challenge from DCWV.
Here is the template.

I used the DCWV The Sweet Blossom Stack I got from Michaels'.
I started with a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2 " card base in pink cardstock.
Cut patterned paper 5 x 5" and rounded the corners with a Fiskars Squeeze punch.
Added a 1 1/2" x 5" Patterned Paper boarder I punched with an EK Success Diamond Lace Edger Punch to the bottom of the Patterned Paper layer.

I triple layered a bird I cut from one of the pages from the stack.
And I attached it to a tag I cut out from a sheet in the stack that has all tags & journal bits on it.
Then added a black eyelet with my Crop A Dile from We R Memory Keepers and some Twinery Twine in Marigold.

I added Branches I drew on with a Black Copic Sketch Marker so my bird would not be floating in space and I would not have such a big open area.
Last I added a Just Because stamp to a journal or title spot found on the same page as the tag above. I used Staz On Jet Black ink to give it a nice deep black image.
I added a few adhesive flat back pearls I got at Micheals' to it and popped it up with foam squares.

Hope you like it. i love the way it turned out.

I tried to find this stack at my Michaels and couldn't. I love that, too!!
