GDP220 Coppery Birthday


Happy St Patrick's Day, peeps!  Unfortunately, I don't have a green card today, but I do have a bright blue one!  I needed a masculine birthday card, and I wanted to use some of the Flowering Foils SAB papers, so here we go:


I took a piece of the grid-style paper and brayered it with some Blueberry Bushel ink, then added a couple of white borders and mounted it on a Blueberry Bushel card. I took the compass image from Sailing Home and heat embossed it with some Copper embossing powder, and mounted it on a Sweetly Stitched diecut of some retired Brushed Copper cardstock.  I also added a little sentiment from Label Me Bold and some copper brads:


I added a sentiment from I Made You A Card and stamped the lighthouse from Setting Sail in Seaside Spray:


The Global Design Project had a CASE the Designer challenge, so I chose to CASE Connie's sketch:

So happy you popped in today!  And here is a wee bit of St Pat's goodness for you---I picked these up at a yard sale on Saturday; they've been dropped, broken and repaired, but they're as cute as buttons and since I had no St Pat's decorations, and the price was good, I gave them a new home!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I'm loving the beautiful blue and gold color scheme on this fabulous card! The design is perfect, but that sentiment is a keeper - I LOVE it!! Love the little Irish cuties too, what a great find and save! Happy St Patrick's day!
