Good evening everyone 🙂 It has definitely been a busy weekend! Have I mentioned that I’m back in school? Well, I am and it’s only part-time, but the assignment involved will take some time to complete! Wish me luck! 🙂
Ok enough about me, back to some craftiness. So today was my friend Joyce’s daughter’s 1st birthday! She’s so cute! It’s been a while since I’ve made a child’s birthday card, so I needed some inspiration, and what better way to get inspired than from a card challenge 🙂 So I went to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see what’s happening there. They had a card sketch challenge this week..
I kept things a little more simple, since time was a bit of an issue this weekend, but I think the card turned out pretty cute! Especially since I’ve been sewing more than paper crafting lately…..(side note – I’ve been working on a big project the past couple of weeks! I’m hoping to get it done this week!)
I love blues…..it’s so bright a cheery! The whale stamp is actually from a retired stamp set from Stampin’ Up called Fox and Friends. The banner is from Itty Bitty Banners, with matching die cut framelits for the Big Shot 🙂 It’s hard to see in my picture, but I also have a dazzling diamonds sparkle border around the white framelit so that it sparkles 🙂
This is the inside and the envelope! The whale and small embellishments are also from another die cut by Stampin’ Up – Clearlits Happy Whale cute huh?
Happy Crafting Everyone!
