Happy Wednesday, everyone!! Today I would like to share a birthday card which was created for my dear, sweet Mother-In-Law. She requested this image from the "Missing You" set by Our Daily Bread designs, plus fall colors, so....she asked for it, she got it!!! I was happy to finally break out this "Pyrus" designer paper by Basic Grey...I love the yummy rich colors in that collection!! Thanks to Gloria's Sketch Tuesday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts, I didn't go overboard on the design. (Check out G's sketch below.) After adding paper piercing, some May Arts Crocheted Lace, a Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly, Zva Creative Pearls, and several layers of "Irridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist, I called it quits! Hope she likes it!!
Tried to get a good close-up of the "Irridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist, but that stuff is so camera shy! It's more visible on the dark layers in this photo, but feel free to click on the photo for zoom.
Along with Gloria's awesome sketch, I have also incorporated the following challenges into this card:The Paper Variety: Inspiration photo with gorgeous rich color blocks;Creative Card Crew: "Let's Punch It!";Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Anything Goes except Buttons and Bows!;Incy Wincy: Lace and Pearls.
Speaking of Christian Paper Crafts, there is a new call list for the Spring on-line edition of Christian Paper Crafts Magazine. Feel free to submit articles on faith-related subjects, inspirational "stuff", or anything to do with paper-crafting. Tutorials are also welcome, along with the usual subjects: cards, layouts, or altered items. Check it out HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Stay tuned tomorrow for a Bible Verse Thursday / Stamping In Time: On Assignment challenge combo.....don't faint, but I'll be showing a layout instead of a card!!!:D
