Some of my favorite creations are made when I just sit down, have no ideas in my head, grab a few stamp sets and just start playing. Such was the case the other evening when I made this birthday card for my favorite Aunt:
I started with a white card base and cut the Boutique Borders die (Papertrey Ink)from white cardstock also (sorry if this doesn't appear very white - it is in real life). Then I stamped the die cut with Boutique Borders Birthday in Simply Chartreuse and a peachy CTMH ink. The leaves and flowers are from Embroidered Blooms stamped in Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Fresh Snow and that peachy ink stamped on a piece of Simply Chartreuse cardstock. I ran my nail along the edges of this piece to rough them up and then mounted to the card.
Unfortunately, there isn't much else to report here. It's been pretty quiet and that's A-Ok with me! Jacob and I are heading to a Weird Al concert this Friday and then we're taking hubby to see Superman on Father's Day so I should have something more interesting to post next week. Or I could tell you about the spaghetti I made for dinner tonight, or the laundry I've been doing....yeah, I didn't think so.
Have a great day and be sure to check out what's new at Petite-Party Planners and Are You on the Fence!
