I wanted to pop in today quickly and share with you one of the cards I had the chance to create this weekend during the long Thanksgiving holiday!
Today is my birthday - I am ....thirty - flooaghoahd - HAHA! Seriously - I am turning 37 today! WOW! Where DOES the time go??
I've been blessed with numerous happy birthday wishes and love from my family and friends. I feel blessed!
I am really liking this trend where you create "wonky" panels on cards - its different and fun! So - I wanted to make my own creation this way. I took some pattern papers from the "Bundle Up" Collection from Crate Paper - LOVE this paper!! I die cut it from the scallop frame from Mama Elephant - Femme Frames - again - I'm obsessed!!
I adhered my die cut panel to some Simon Says Stamp Wood grain card stock which is my base. I die cut a banner from the small banners die also from Simon Says Stamp, and I stamped and heat embossed " & Bright" from the Merry and Bright greeting that comes in the Small Folded Banners Holiday stamp set from SSS. I love the wood elements that SSS came out with last year and I had some left over, so I used the "Merry" to complete my sentiment. To finish off my card, I just added some fun sequin embellishments from Lawn Fawn.
Well - gonna wrap this up and go celebrate as if were my birthday :) *grin*
