A couple days ago my friend Heidi challenged me to make a card using one of my new images and a sketch she picked out. Of course I can't say NO to any of my friends, so I looked at the sketch and put this card together. Since I've been meaning to make a special birthday card, this seemed like the perfect time.
There are lots of elements to this card, first I colored the image then sponged it to match my color scheme. Then I stamped the two sentiments and cut them out using my circle nesties. I added brads because the background paper has glitter elements and it's hard to find adhesive that will stick. Then I added stickles around the scallop edges and to the basket as well as the tulips. Then I distressed the background paper to match my overall color theme.
I decided the folded edge needed something, so I used a strip that was left over from making a Big Shot Bigz box. And since I love adding ribbon to any project, I found this pretty ribbon with bright glitter butterflies.
I sure hope the birthday likes her card as I tried to make it extra special. A thought a plain white envelope just wouldn't do, so I added some layered circle scallops and the birthday's girls name. When I finished that I sponged the entire envelope, then packed it up and sent it on its way.
I hope all of you in blog land are having a blessed evening and I'll catch up with you after I have finished my next project.
