Hello all. Hope life is being good to you.
We got a little over 3 inches of rain last evening!
I'm still loaded down with all my same symptoms into the second week, but woke up determined to just slug through. A lift to my spirits was long overdue.
I pray it outlasts this Fibromyalgia flare.
Today is my friend Bonnie Lynn's birthday so I wanted to wish her well and share the card I made her for the big day.
I chose this Cheerful Sketch Challenge sketch for my layout design.
I used a pre-coloured digi image from The Paper Shelter called Comfy at Home, which I printed out and fussy cut.
I love all the Autumn vibes in the image, so cozy.
For Bonnie's card, I chose a white square base and Kaisercraft's Bubblegum Hills paper collection. It comes with a few pages of matching tags, embellies and borders, and I used a small butterfly tab embellie to top the sentiment mat, along with 3 hearts cut from the pink paper and a Spellbinders die. All of the papers are from this collection and were ink-edge distressed with some brown chalk ink for a cozy, vintage-y feel. I added two die cut Spellbinders butterflies I found in my bits and bobs stash. The paper patterns had a heart and butterflies thing going on, so I included both as accent elements. The sentiment was stamped with Pinecone VF Clair ink that matched the chalk ink well and is a mash-up of Gerda Steiner, October Afternoon and Inkadinkado stamps.
Inside of the card, the MFT and Stamp Magick sentiments were stamped with Purple Passion VF Clair ink and I added a Kaisercraft border embellie from the paper pack to the bottom.
The colors did not photograph true here but it's the only shot I have of the back of the card. More of the Kaisercraft collection papers. I also used a few of the tags/embellies/borders that came with the paper pack and I stamped an Impression Obsession siggie with Charming Pink Versafine Clair ink.
Final view at an angle to show the base mat of shiny embossed Kaisercraft paper and the foiling on the dotted paper behind the focal image.
Thanks for the visit!
Happy Birthday, hope your day is Tres Bonnie!!
Wishing you a cozy, comfy Autumn birthday!
I used Pink and Sparkles
I love all of the harvest colors, because of the leaves turning colors almost all the colors are harvest colors, just like the patchwork blanket the girl is snuggling under on my card front.
