I'm Thankful for...The Shabby Tea Room Challenge!

Sometimes I forget to thank God for all the things that make me happy, for the things that make me stronger, for the things that make me who I am...sometimes I forget to take a moment to look at the sky and enjoy the beautiful blue and white skies...sometimes I forget to thank God for my family, my friends, my work, my parents, for what I have and for the things I'm working for...but today I remembered to look up, I remembered to give thanks, to tell my children how much I love them, I was on time for work...

Today, is the day to Thank God!

This week's challenge at The Shabby Tea room is to create a card or project based on this delicious picture.

I altered a metal birdhouse I found at Michael's dollar bin.

I made the rosettes using Bazzil cardstock, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, Tim Holtz Tattered die cut and distressing inks. I also used the technique I'm going to share...I found this video on you tube and I will share it with you so you can learn how to make this beautiful roses. The process is time consuming but the end result is spectacular.

 I took this technique a little bit further and used the same technique for the leaves. I also inked the flower petals with Tim Holtz ink and sprayed T.A glimmer mist. I hung a canvas bird inside the birdhouse with fishing string to give it some movement. Enjoy the video that was created by Janna.
