Birthday Sparkles

Happy Monday! :) When I started this card I thought I might try Beate's WSC44, but I couldn't bring myself to cut up the patterned paper, so I went with the Verve Inspiration Challenge instead. I loved the colors, swirls and stitching in the paper and was then pleasantly surprised to find out it's Daisy D.

My daughter Sarah loves this color combination too, so it's perfect for her birthday card. As is the Inkadinkado Patterned Butterfly. Sarah is such a social butterfly, always wanting to "go" and "do", and she's transforming into such a beautiful, spirited young lady. It's hard to believe she's 10 already!

The Basic Grey chipboard piece was something new for me, but when I saw the challenge on Verve, it was the first thing that came to mind. I inked up the flourish with my Blue Bayou classic ink pad and then covered it with Crystal Stickles. After I let it dry, I added Primas and bling and then adhered it to the cardfront with glue dots. It was fun to play with brighter colors. I've got a couple more cards that I'll share later in the week using a similar color combo. Until then, enjoy the sunshine!~ Patti

I can see why you couldn't bring yourself to cut up that paper -- it's SO pretty! Those colors would work well for so many things too!

Great card; love all the sparkle and bling -- seems perfect for a double-digit "social butterfly." Bet she loved it.

Thanks, too, for the nice comment you left on my blog. ;)

Excuse me? Did you just say Sarah is TEN?! *When* did that happen? lol You know, it's only my own kids who grow up, everyone else's stay the approximate age they were when I met them - so for Sarah that would be 5! I am sure she loved this pretty card! When will we get to see some of the things Sarah stamps? ;)

Love & friendship, Jules
