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:
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.
