Happy Birthday Sarah
My daughter celebrates her birthday today and I used the sketch for this week’s challenge at the Sketch Frenzy Friday Blog to create her card.
I embossed Whisper White card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Wisteria Wonder card. I cut a piece of the gorgeous Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper which is Free in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and brayered over it with Soft Sky ink. This DSP is already embossed with a design and you can add any colour you wish to match anything you are creating. Just beautiful! Anyway, I attached the brayered paper to the centre of the card front. I cut a circle from Wisteria Wonder card using one of the Circle Framelit Dies and attached it to the centre of Designer Series Paper. I cut a strip of Sahara Sand card, cut a “v” in each end and attached it over the Wisteria Wonder circle. I stamped the image from the Bloom With Hope stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it using Wisteria Wonder and Old Olive Blendibilities. I punched the image using the 2″ Circle Punch and attached it to the card front using dimensionals.
Inside the card I simply stamped and coloured the same image from the Bloom With Hope stamp set that I used on the front of the card. I also added the greeting from the same stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
We are celebrating with a family get together for lunch at one of my favourite eating venues – the Beachmere Tavern. The food is always lovely and they have a great playground for the grandchildren.
Bye for now,
