The Pyrex Effect

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great long weekend! Today, my mom picked up the kids for a sleepover so Dustin and I are having quiet time. Can I tell you, there's nothing better for my head than quiet? I don't get a whole lot of it around here. :)

Since I've decided to start crafting again, I've actually had a fair amount of mojo. YAY! I'm sure it won't last long. I believe this is the first time I've played along with Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger. This week, we were to be inspired by this picture of Pyrex. You can find challenge details HERE. I was really inspired by the colors and the back and white I see under the Pyrex.
For this card, I opened up my brand new Lauderdale paper from Basic Grey. I thought I could count on it for the pop of color I need. I tried to find the perfect bird and decided on this one from Unity's Folk Inspired set. I hadn't planned on using the clock but I really love the feel of the whole thing. I colored it with Copics then added a rhinestone and some Stickles. The die is Spellbinders Labels Four and I used two colors of Divine Twine. Then the sentiment was spelled out with stickers from MLS.

Have a great day, everyone!
