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!
