Each week Our Daily Bread designs features one of their Design Team girls, otherwise known as "The Breadsticks", on the ODBD blog....this week, it's mine turn!
Today I would love to share a birthday card I made for a dear friend. I knew I wanted to make a trellis with the wide lace given to me by my friend and scrappin' buddy, Debbie Wallace....hi Debbie!! I started out by sponging the background scene....using scratch paper for masking, I sponged the grassy area, then sponged the sky using a SU cloud template. After paper piercing the edges, I added May Arts satin ribbon, topped with lace ribbon by Offray across the middle. I then adhered my "trellis", added punched leaves with a Martha Stewart punch and tiny paper roses by Zva Creative. The sentiment panel is a pre-printed Flower Soft Card Topper. Both oval layers were cut by hand, then stamped with my go-to stamp from the "Thinking of You" set, paper pierced, and embellished with Raspberry Fizz UltraFine Flower Soft. The pearls are by Zva Creative and the finished card was sprayed with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist. The butterfly punch is also by Martha Stewart, topped with Zva Pearls, and hubby advised me where to place it!! Thanks, honey!! :)
I have used a few challenges in the making of this card. The Sketch Tuesday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts (on which I definitely took some liberties), plus the Color Monday Challenge there to choose one or a combo of blue, pink, orange or yellow. The Shabby Tea Room challenge this week is "Summer Fun".....what says summer more than a blooming rose bush? I LOVE working in my flower gardens, but my stamp room usually wins out!! Also, at the Stamp Something blog, the challenge there is "Happy Somethings".....flowers ARE happiness to me!!!! A Spoon Full of Sugar's challenge is Enjoying the Sunshine. The Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week is Celebrate Summer! Lots of summer stuff going on....love it!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! God Bless!
