Good Monday morning everyone!
One of my dear friends is celebrating a birthday on Wednesday and I will be taking her to lunch tomorrow after a shopping visit to a yarn shop. We are both knitters and she is a beach lover, so I made this card for her. As inspiration, I used the CR84FN32 colours pic and this is what I came up with.
I started with an aqua card front (Coredinations) and this great colourful letter print paper (October Afternoon). I rounded 2 of the corners and sponged the panel with SU crumbcake ink. I used 2 new circular dies from MemoryBox that I bought from Ellen Hutson and layered together. I then stamped a SU heart that has French printing and a floral image, cur out, sponged and coloured. I have had these great cocktail picks with shells on them that I bought at Anthropologie last Summer and finally using one of them. The Celebrate sentiment is from the SU set Fancy Phrases and I stamped it onto another MemoryBox "pastry labels" die that I also recently acquired from Ellen's store. The little charm is removable for my friend to add to a bracelet or necklace and I tied a SU Pear Pizzazz seam binding length and tied into a simple bow. I hope she will like the card and the yarn and I know we will both enjoy the Margarita that we will have with lunch in celebration of her birthday :)
Thanks for taking a peek,
Cheers ~ Chriss
