Throwback Thursday Challenge! - Challenge~98

Good morning & Welcome to another Throwback Thursday challenge!! 1st of all I want to give a shout out to my Bestie ~Nikki because she helped me w/this idea for a challenge! Frankly, I thought it was a PERFECT idea!;) Why not create a card using NO machines~ lets make our cards "Old School" style! hehehe! Remember when there was no fancy die cutting machines or anything like it back in the days!! All I remember is cardstock, pattern paper, scissors, glue & stamps! YEP, this sure was a challenge for me because you have NO idea how many times I picked up my Gypsy Girl: (So I had to remind myself that there were no Gypsy either back in the days! 

To qualify for the giveway, you must:
****Link your project up to "Mr. Linky" below
****Challenge is based on "ORIGINALITY"

****Deadline for project will be SATURDAY, SEPT 25TH @ 6:00pm CST
****Last but Not Least~ HAVE FUN!!

I decided to use Emma's challenge to make my Mother a Thank You card since she unexpectedly sent me some money for my birthday. I hope she likes it!
I used brown cardstcok as the base and 4 different decorative sheets from the Flower Shower Spring Stack by DCWV.
I used my paper trimmer to cut the birds and their houses from the sheets and layered the papers. I used a clear stamp and brown ink for "thanks".
I love the different flaps on this card. It is the same type that Dorcas sent me. 
I added brown satin ribbon that I purchased at Michaels today for 20 cents.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana : )
