It is time for another challenge at Isabella's Sketchbook and this week it is Birthdays. That is one kind of card you can never have enough on hand at all times of the year. I decided to make a very feminine card and I think I have just the person to send it to. I guess I will have to make a box because I doubt that it will fit in an envelope and even if it does, the post office will probably refuse to take it because it is so dimensional. Don't they understand that crafters like us do dimension most of the time?
We would love for you to pop over to Isabella's store, pick up one of her wonderful images, make one of your awesome Birthday creations and share it with us in the Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge. You have until next Tuesday so I hope you will play.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Stamp Something - Celebrate Something
Crafty Catz - Petals and Pearls
All Sorts - Birthday
Crafty Ann's - Anything Goes
Whoopsie Daisy - As You Like It
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Anything Goes
Crazy Challenge - Something New (the Heart punch, the string of pearls, the pearl button - all new)
The image from Isabella's Sketchbook is called Beyond The Garden Gate and has been coloured with a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons. The paper is from a Provo Craft Scrap Pack and the card stock is Recollections (Michaels) and DCWV. The sentiment was made by me and computer generated. Other supplies used: Lace (my late Mother's stash), Peach Grosgrain Ribbon for Flower (my stash), Pearl Button (Bridal Supply Store), Pearl Strand (Michaels), Heart Punch (Martha Stewart), Iridescent Glitter (Stampendous), Ribbon (Kate's Paperie), Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and Chalk (Mungyo).
