FMS164 & CTD320


Happy Friday, peeps!  I hope all my US friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We did!  I have another birthday card to share with you today; this one uses the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this week:

And here is my “eclectic” creation:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Collage Birthday Teeny Tiny Wishes Stampin Up

All the papers and embellishments are from an old Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends pad that hadn’t been touched for a while, and I just cut them apart and arranged them pleasingly.  I added a panel of Crumb Cake with a diecut border, some crochet lace, an organdy ribbon frosted with glitter, a few sequins, and a button tied with linen thread.  I also did some wonky stitching around the outside edge!  The one little bit of stamping is the birthday sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped in Riding Hood Red:



I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed putting this together!  I also loosely used the color palette from the Color Throwdown this week, which I LOVE:

I know my card isn’t a holiday card, but I hope that’s okay!  And there are a wee bit of other colors in there too!

We had a few inches of wet snow on Wednesday, and Cassidy just had to go out and play in it!  My photos are a little blurry, but I still love the look on her face!




Her red mittens were Dana’s….knitted by my mom.  Sweet.
