Happy Birthday for DD#56 and CCMC255

Sunday, June 9, 2013

I just wanted to pop in quickly today with a card I made with the pretty colors at Dynamic Duos and the lovely sketch at Create With Connie and Mary.




As I was putting this together it occurred to me that vellum might look nice on my card so I layered it over the Soft Suede cardstock.  I stamped the leaves on it and at first they looked quite splotchy so I ended up going over it with a marker.  I adhered it with the stamped image facing down so that it has a little softer look.

I was on a roll last night in my stamp room and actually managed to make three cards!   I needed to get a jump start on things for the week ahead because in a couple of hours I'm headed over to my nephew's graduation party and I'll be gone all day.  I'm bringing the sangria, YUM!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Raining Flowers, Summer Silhouettes, Itty Bitty Banners
Accessories:  Bitty Banners die, Dimensionals

Taking a quick break before the graduation party for granddaughter starts. It's at our house and I've been cleaning/cooking/slicing....well you get the idea. Gorgeous card. Love the colors, and that bloom is amazing. I love the soft round corner beneath the banner. Nice!
