Making It Count
I made this birthday card for a lovely crafting buddy of mine and now I know she's received it I can use it on my blog. It was an 8 x 8 card, so quite large and I tried to give it a distressed vintage look as I know this is her favourite style.
It actually fitted with a number of the challenges this week, so I'm entering it for as many as possible. As I'm not likely to be able to enter many in the near future I thought I may as well 'make it count' by getting it to fit as many as I could!
The challenges are:
Sweet Stampin - Oh So Girly
Crazy 4 Challenges - Use Flowers
Wild Orchid - Anything Goes
Anything Goes - Distressing
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Feminine Birthday in Blues and Greens
Crafty Ann's Challenge - Birthday Card
Totally Papercrafts - Pearls and Lace
* Stamped Sentiment - My Favourite Things Die-namics 'Polka Dot Greetings Die & Stamp Set'
* Papers - Hot Off The Press 'Paper Pizazz' & Coredinations 'Whitewash'
* Punch - MS PATP 'Vintage Lace'
* Everything else from my stash
I used lots of Distress Ink around the papers and flowers and plenty of Glimmer Mist and Glamour Dust then finished off with a lovely lace bow tied with my fabby new 'Bow-Easy' I even remembered to use one of my pile of doilies, which I usually forget until after I've finished the card!
