Happy Thursday everyone!
Just a quick post before I tend to the grocery shopping...
I made this birthday card using Jen's January 2011 SFYTT
I don't have any of The Cat's Pyjamas stamps (which is a requirement to win for the month) but I wanted to make something with my new Basic Grey "Hopscotch" paper and show off this great sketch that Jen designed, so here it is :)
I also made this for the Inchie challenge going on at Ellen's, but I misread the details, so I will be back at the drawing board for this one (I was supposed to make the card with black/white and one other colour).
The stamp is a Lockhart cupcake with petunias that I coloured with my Copic markers and cut out. I layered onto a piece of the solid blue from the Hopscotch pad cut with a PTI die and then a circle of textured pink card stock that I had in my stash. I added some zig zag stitching at the top and bottom of the panel and some straight stitching on the solid pink panel. The tall vertical panel was created with a MS border punch. I added the three pink pearls for a little je ne sais quoi?. It still looks a little sparse to me...hmmmm, I may add a flourish yet.
The sentiment is from PTI.
Hope you are having a great day,
