Oh Fabulous! It's Your Birthday!
Are you ready to show us what you got?! We hope you are, because that's the theme for our new challenge, today, at Shelly's Images! What does that mean exactly, you ask?! That means "Anything Goes!" We want to see anything and everything you create, and there is no limit to how many times you can enter, so you have no reason not to play along with us this week! No Excuses! Join us at Shelly's Images and Show Us What You Got! You could win a prize from the Shelly's Images Store!
Wow, I really stepped out of my comfort zone this time. Not only did I push myself to do a non-traditional birthday card, but I also did double paper piecing on the same image! This was my first time trying it and I love the effect! I think it turned out fabulous! I'm using this week's featured image, Glass Slipper. I paper pieced the pillow of the image in a black and white floral print, and then paper pieced the glass slipper in a red and white polka dot print. All papers are new and were bought specifically for this card. It was so much fun mixing all the patterns, and I love this black white and red combo! The sentiment is punched with a trio label punch by EK Success. The flowers and red dew drops are from my stash. I used some blingy, sparkly flourish stickers to add that extra special touch to the card. Faux stitching has been added with an opaque white pen by Inksentials.
The sentiment inside says, "May Your Birthday Be As Fabulous As You Are!"
This fun card for my cousin's birthday and put it in the mail to her this morning. She's going to love it since she's really into shoes and being girly!
I used Sketch #18 From the Sketch Catalog at Sketch N Stash. (See pic below)
