So Sweet

I received this picture from Brandy for a birthday card she recently made.  I'm just so impressed with the sweet simplicity of this card, that stamp and the intricate details Brandy added to the card.  I'm going to try to summarize the details:

  • The young lady is Simply Gorjuss The Black Star stamp stamped in black Archival Ink onto watercolor paper and colored with Distress Markers, Distress inks and a watercolor pen.She was fussy cut out with scissors.
  • The ivy is cut with Cottage Cutz Ivy Made Easy die which she then colored with Distress Inks and a watercolor pen.
  • The balloons were stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with Distress Inks as well.  The stamp is from Hobby Lobby
  • The white lattice was die cut using Spellbinders Fancy Lattice die and the grass was cut with IO's Grass Border die.
  • The remainder are fence pieces cut using the Cricut and embossed with woodgrain embossing folder. 

She's just such a sweetly adorable image, I think that face makes the card, don't you?  I hope you have occasion to use your supplies to make someone a beautiful birthday card this week.  Join me in a round of applause for Brandy's hard work.

She's so sweet I'm entering this card in Simon Says Stamp's Challenge: H is for....  Holtz since she was colored with Distress Markers.
