Hello and happy Saturday. It's been pretty dreary around here today which I feel is a perfect excuse to play in my craft room. I haven't been very creative lately and I have really missed it. I miss the challenges and creating new things. Some of my girlfriends are in Houston at the Stampin Up Leadership Convention and have been sharing all of the new things that are coming out! It is pretty exciting stuff!
For today I am sharing a birthday card that I have made for the Create with Connie & Mary challenge. I haven't participated in this one in a while and although I wasn't a huge fan of the sketch I did feel like it would challenge me and I was right! I had a tough time with this one although my card turned out pretty simple.
The sketch for this challenge is
And here is my card
I will have to say that it turned out much better than I imagined in my head. The paper used is called Retro Fresh (#132993) along with the journaling tag (#133526) and washi tape (#133001). I am in love with this line of paper! The colors are so pretty together! I punched out the flowers with our Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (#118309) and used Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) in the middle of the flowers.
I want to try and send out as many birthday cards as I can this year to family and friends. If I have them readily available then I have no excuse! Hope this inspires you to get out your supplies to make one yourself.
You can find all the supplies listed at my website HERE. Hope you have a fabulous day!
