Half the week is over and we are getting closer to the weekend again. I don't really like to rush time by as I get older, but I sure do look forward to time off to play in the craft room. It is typically too difficult during the week with school, but I did make time to create this card (and boy was it fun!).
The challenge at Craftaholics R Us begins today.
This Week's Challenge...
~ Birthday Cards ~
Here is my Design Team project...
I ALWAYS need birthday cards and never have enough, especially this time of year.
For this card I started with cutting the three layers...the scallop and stitched rectangle are by My Favorite Things ~ Blueprints 20 (one of my personal favorites). Then I cut WISH with my Cuttlebug and placed it to the side so I could create my background. I used the Large Polka Dot stencil, Marble background, and Distressed Patterns stamp set along with Ranger picked raspberry and worn lipstick oxide inks. I splattered a few distressed spots in a couple shades of purple.
Next...I stamped, colored, and die cut the MFT elephant and attached the purple Melissa Frances ribbon. Lastly, I added the MFT Happy Hippos stamped sentiment and adhered a few purple sequins using a glue pen.
