happy birthday

Hello, crafty peeps! I have a special kind of project to share with you today, a card I created for the Scrapping4fun Challenges Guest Designer Challenge! Anyone who was a guest designer for Scrapping4fun Challenges this year has been invited to participate. We were allowed to choose our own theme as long as we follow this sketch:


I love sketches and pretty much followed this one to a ‘T’ (as I usually do) and created a pretty birthday card using five coordinating papers from the BasicGrey Marjolaine paper pad. I also used some silver foil and glitter Washi.


I used a variety of dies to achieve the elements in the sketch, along with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and leaf charm, and a little bit of bling.


I embellished the inside with leftover strips of paper used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in black ink. The front and inside sentiments are from Inspired by Stamping.


And here’s one more peek… I really love how this turned out! And that sketch is pure awesomeness! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
