As you can tell from my odd centered formatting, I'm still getting used to the Blogger changes....grrrr....I'm not really partial to centered text, I'm a left justified kind of girl! **giggle**
But today's card is so much fun that I can't stay cranky for too long! This is a card featuring totally fun images from Paper Smooches! I love Paper Smooches! Kim has designed some of the sweetest little creatures and all kinds of sentiments that are perfect for any occasion! My card features a darling bird from the My Peeps set and sentiment from the Chubby Chums set. My card was made especially for a dear friend of mine who is embarking on a personal journey to make some positive changes and I wanted to send her a little card to encourage her.
The base of my card was stamped with a background image from Hero Arts and then I just gently sponged the edges of the entire card 'cause I just can't help myself! Then I added just a few layers of cardstock in red and yellow polka dots. The red cardstock was cut with a scalloped die from My Favorite Things. Then I used a branch die, from Tim Holtz, to create the branches and a cloud die from The Cat's Pajamas for the..umm...clouds. (The clouds are in felt) My sweet birdie was colored with Copics and I even stamped, colored, and cut out a second wing for a wee bit of dimension. And now I'm off to get this in the mail with hopes that it will bring a smile to the face of my dear friend.
