Papaya Collage Bits & Pieces Card

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Wait For It!
Michael and I have been wanting a new fountain for the backyard for awhile.  We have spent some time looking - mostly at garden stores.  We came close to buying one about a month ago.  We hemmed and hawed.  It was quite expensive and we just didn't love it like we felt we should for that price.  So we waited.  Well, over the weekend Michael went to the flea market and guess what he came home with???  Yes!  A beautiful metal fountain that is perfect for our backyard and....drumroll was only $40!!!!  (although it would likely be about $200 new in the store).  Sometimes you just have to wait for it.  It will find its way to you in its own time :)  Here is a picture of the new fountain in its new home...the birds have already started visiting :)
Today's card began with the bird from Papaya Collage.  I stamped it with Soft Suede onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out.  Next I started gathering up bits and pieces from other card projects - a piece of embossed tissue tape, a dash of seam binding, a strip of scalloped edge.  I added a punched circle from Apothecary Art along with a button and hemp twine.  I love being able to gather up bits and pieces to create a fun collage card.  I hope you like it!
