PPA115 & TSSC195


I carved out a little stamping time this afternoon; the beautiful photo of the Pals Paper Arts challenge this week:


paired with Sketch 195 from Mary Jo at Technostamper:


gave me the inspiration I needed to make this birthday card:


Sorry, no crows on this card! (Or spider webs!) There is a bird, though! I used elements from Creative Elements, French Foliage and Nature Walk along with a sentiment from Bring on the Cake. The large flower was heat embossed, then watercolored with ink and an aquapainter. The smaller flower was punched with the Boho Blossoms punch using Tangerine Tango Patterns DP, then sponged and scrunched!


That yummy velveteen ribbon featured in the Holiday Mini catalog makes an appearance here too! Hope my friend likes it!


DD had no water this morning, so they arrived at my house in their PJs and slippers! Oh, and Miss Ellie the Elephant, too! TFL!

Your subtle background stamping is beautiful - it adds such wonderful detail and depth to your cards! I have to make myself try that now and then - Heaven forbid I put too much ink on my cards! This is lovely! Oh and I should look so cute in my pj's :)

I thought that was your front door when I click on your blog. Beautiful card. What a sweetie in her PJ and with her elephant. So cute!

Wonderfully done! What a great take on this sketch. I love the flower in the place of the little embellishment. And what the heck your little cutie just keeps getting cuter all the time! Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week!
