Handpicked by God!

Happy Friday, everyone! I don't know about you, but I am ready for the weekend!! I've got lots of crafting to do and lots of blogging to catch up on! Today I have a card to share that I made for my niece, Leah, for her 16th birthday! Happy Birthday, sweetie!!! For my family, I always ask for special requests before making any cards....Leah asked for anything pastel, shimmer was okay but no glitter! I guess when you turn 16, you prefer less girl stuff and more "young women" stuff instead! So, I made an elegant, pink card with some of my fave SEI pearly paper from the "With All My Heart" collection.

Using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine, I cut out the card base (and SEI layer) with the Grand Labels One die set. To create the close white mat, I embossed the same die used to cut the SEI layer, then cut the impression out by hand, which is fairly easy since it's a large shape. I didn't want to cover up the gorgeous designer paper, so I kept the design simple by adding the sentiment from the Our Daily Bread designs "Garden Tag Set", framed with Labels Four dies, and embellished with a Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish, Zva Creative Pearls, and May Arts Satin Ribbon tied with a Bow Easy. The paper piercing was done by hand.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Garden Tag Set';
Cardstock: SU Pink Pirouette and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: SEI 'With All My Heart';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, SU Pink Pirouette;
Accessories: Spellbinders Grand Labels One and Labels Four Dies, Cheery Lynn Designs' Fanciful Flourish, May Arts Satin Ribbon, Zva Creative Pearls, , Paper Piercer, Foam Tape;
Size: Approx 5 x 5.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fun-filled, blessed weekend!!!
