Happy Birthday with New Stuff

Hello Everybody!

I hope everybody had a great and crafty National Scrapbook Day.  I spent Friday and Saturday at the Scrapbook Expo.  I took 101 and 102 book binding and met Melissa Francis!  She is super nice and so creative.

I also took a class from Clear Scraps and the owner is super awesome and thanked us for taking her class and supporting her business.  So of course I had to go check out her booth after the class.

So I got so much fun stuff and I was able to use some on this birthday card for a nice lady that my husband works with.

The papers are Pink Paisley.  The lady and banner are part of a stamp/framelet set by Tim Holtz.  It comes with an oval frame too.

Here is a close up.  I used some brown gems from Mon Ami Gabby-new!  :)  The butterfly is from Martha Stewart.  And you know the front cover that comes with paper packs?  That is where I die cut that butterfly from, the square showing the grey paper.  (Not that I am low one paper-that is not the case my friends-but if you can use it-why not?)

And this is light modeling paste with grey and yellow gelato blended in it.  And this Harlequin stencil-new from The Crafters Workshop.  I used some Weathered Wood and Tattered Twigs Distress in some places.  Oh and scattered straw for the yellow color on the banner.

I was totally inspired by the sketch at Retro Sketches for this card.  It is challenge #113 and here is the sketch:

Thank you all for stopping by and leaving sweet comments.  I really do appreciate it!  Also, I just started an InstaGram account (Iliketocutandpaste).  If you are on there check me out.  And if you follow me I will follow you!  :)  

Until next time my friends...good night!
