Hello! Check out the cheery little card I made this morning. It looks so happy! Anyhow, I made this card for the Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge. I fell in love with the sketch and knew I had to play right away. Did you notice the size of the photo? Blogger has revamped their editor and their are some cool options. I'm gonna try this out. Hopefully you'll get a better sense of the details on my cards. ETA: That didn't work so well. The photo was so large that the right side was cut off.
When I started to think about what I wanted to do with this sketch, I really wanted to use embossed panels. The embossing folder "birds and swirls" worked the best out of my small collection of embossing folders. I also used it yesterday on this card. The finished card looks wedding-ish, so I used a "Congrats" stamp.
There are stickles (glitter) on all the flower petals. I tried really hard to get a close-up, but failed miserably. Sorry about that. You'll just have to take my word for it.
I wish you all a great weekend! My kiddos have their first baseball games this evening. So excited!!! I'll try and snap a few good pics to post next week. Have a great day!!!
