Make a Wish

Happy Thursday everyone!! I hope you are having a great week!! Only two days left in February...I hope March is much better to us weather-wise :)


I wanted to enter a couple of challenges so I created a springy birthday card to add to my stash :)


The papers are from Ruby Rock-It's Arcadia stack and were attached with Score Tape. The edges were distressed with a Zutter Distress-It-All and then inked with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. Two sizes of Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles Large were cut with papers from my stash. They were sanded with a TH sander and each layer was popped up with foam tape for dimension. The tag is a TH Tiny Tabs and Tags die. The pearl swirls are from Want 2 Scrap and I snipped and manipulated them along the side of the card. The ribbon is from May Arts and the Chalk White Seam Binding was colored with TH Spun Sugar Distress Stain. Make a Wish is a TH Remnant Rub - I am addicted to these right now...I'm rubbing them on everything :)


A Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangle die was used for the sentiments from JustRite Stamps Grand Sentiments stamp set. It was stamped with Versafine in Black Onyx.

The butterfly is a Spellbinders Wonderful Wings die. It was stamped with the coordinating stamp from the JustRite Grand Sentiment set in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The antennae were created with beads from my stash. The top layer was attached to the base with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen along the center, leaving the wings unattached.


I used the Classy Cards 'n Such color palette for this card:


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. JustRite Stamps #115 - Spring Cheer
  2. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - A/G with Pearls
  3. DL.Art - February Linky
  4. Every Day is an Occasion - February Linky
  5. Just B Creative Crazy - February Linky
  6. Classy Cards 'n Such - Color Palette (items from store: Score Tape, Chalk White Seam Binding, Want 2 Scrap White Pearl Swirls, Sakura Quickie Glue Pen) 
  7. Word Art Wednesday #121 - Anything Goes
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

Incredibly beautiful Lisa! The mix of colors, elements and textures bring this right over the top! I love al the gems/pearls! As always such awesome work:) I LOVE it and it reminds me of spring/summer...yeah, let's hope it comes early since we've had such a cold winter! We dipped down cold again last night -47 with the windshield. We were at about -5 for a high today and they are saying it is going to stay cold for the next 5 day forecast :( I guess I will have to stay in and craft!!!

Have a great day my friend
