RRCB228 Yarny Birthday

 Happy Wednesday, peeps! A quick card today that uses the sketch from Retro Rubber:

We have a little craft group that meets each week at our church; some of us knit, some cross-stitch, some make cards and some crochet!  One of the crocheters has a birthday coming up and I made her a card using the yarn skein from Hand Knit (2010) as well as a sentiment from Here's a Card (2019):

These 12"x12" papers from Echo Park called I'd Rather Be Crafting were bright and cheerful, so I created my layers and mounted them on a retired Soft Sky card base.  The yarn was stamped in Calypso Coral and colored in with a Flirty Flamingo Blend.  I added a Flirty Flamingo circular mat as well as a Soft Sky mat, diecut with a Zigzag Stitched circle die from Sissix:

A wee little baker's twine bow finished it off.  I stamped a punny sentiment on the inside, along with the little knit garment from the same set:

Thanks for visiting today! Enjoy it and be blessed!
