PDCC42 + 2 extra challenges

Ever get to the point you have so much "stuff" that you don't know what you own? *sigh* I'm guilty of being one of those people that buys faster than I can use :) So along with the challenge at the Play Date Cafe, I also challenged myself two other ways. 1) I had to pick something off my peg board that has been sitting there forever and 2) the card could take no more than 10 minutes (yikes!) I knew my colors had to be green, dark brown and beige so I started sifting through the pile of "stuff" on my peg board and I found something I forgot I had (go figure!) I found a whole sheet of this pretty glittered bird stickers by Martha Stewart Crafts and just my luck, one was green with brown and beige :) I tried the 10 minute challenge, came close, but was over by 3 minutes because of the bow. I love bows, but I don't quite have the technique down where you get that "perfect knot lol. So....this is what I came up with:

Birdie Hello Card

Cardstock: (Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up!, (Champagne Frost) Bazzill
Ribbon: (Satin Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up!
Rub-On: Stampin' Up!
Texture Plate: (Big Dots) Sizzix exclusive Stampin' Up!
Punch: (Scallop Border) Stampin' Up!
Other: Stitching Tool

Thanks for looking and why not challenge yourself to use something you've had forever ;)
