Sweet Peas for a Birthday
Hello I have been having a busy week! I hope yours is going well! Today I'm showing you a card I made for a good friend to give to his wife for her birthday. He wanted something special for her... feminine and pretty. I used Flourishes Sweet Pea set. Their Timeless Tuesday Challenge this week is all about you... what you love, what makes you happy. I love Sweet Peas and have wanted to play with this set for some time now. The day finally came. I stamped it three times and popped different blossoms up different amounts, and the entire image is cut out once and layered on to the pretty DP from BasicGrey's Porcelain Pack which I cut out with the Spellbinders Label #5. I layered that onto Bassill Green Textured CS. To make it a little more sparkly I painted the flowers with Shimmerz. Love that stuff!!! I used my new Martha Stewart Large Lattice Punch, ZVA pearls and ribbon from Papertrey on this easel card that was definitely inspired by one I saw some time ago by Cindy Haffner. I also made this for the Fussy and Fancy Challenge this week to Dazzle them, and Paper Play's challenge to make a birthday card for someone special.
Thanks so much for looking! I love knowing you stopped by! Have a blessed day!
