I pinned a card last week because I thought the image was so very sweet. Then I went on the hunt at Sassy Cheryl’s to find the image. It took a little time, but I managed to find Sassy Sally Curtsy. She was in the $2 area, which I wasn’t expecting. Anyway…here’s the inspiration for the card I made. I am really liking Pinterest for opening my eyes to new and neat blogs!
I used, what else, my colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits to color the image. :) And I sponged some Tim Holtz Faded Jeans distress ink to look like sky. I had the Doodlebug polka dot paper in my stash from last spring. I paired it with Hydrangea (CTMH) cardstock and some green pattern paper (unknown brand). I punched the Martha Stewart border, added a narrow white organdy ribbon and added some Doodlebug twine. My nod to doing something different was to offset the image. I like the final result quite a bit. :)
While I had the paper sitting on my desk, I quick made another clean and simple card, pretty much casing this one.
These are squares with two corners rounded off. The larger square is 1 1/4 inches and the smaller is 3/4 inch. I probably could have cut smaller squares, but it would have been harder to round the corners of the smaller piece. The happy birthday is from Papertrey Ink’s Birthday Basics set and stamped in Hydrangea ink. The purple gem is from my stash and I think it was Kaisercraft, but it’s not in the packaging so I can’t say for sure. It’s hard to tell from this shot, but the petals of the flower are pop dotted as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day!
