A Fabulous Birthday Card
I'm stopping in while out of town to share a card Brandy made. She forwarded this picture to me and I gasped - I think this is such a wonderful card. Brandy would tell you how easy it was to make too. She followed the technique shared by Dawn Woleslagle from W Plus 9 in this video. She used her Distress inks (Wilted Violet, Ripe Persimmons, Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Peeled Paint) to color the balloons and her Nuvo Crystal Drops to make those domed, pearl-like drops. Easy and simple, but a fabulous birthday card to make someone feel special. The sentiment is stamped in Archival Black Ink using a Penny Black Sweet Wishes sentiment stamp. It is the perfect crisp finish to the card.
It seems that Brandy and I are off to a great, crafty start to the new year. I'm out of town at the moment, but trying to stay up with your posts as well, so I'll be around soon. Then, I hope to be home for a while with less traveling on the horizon so that I can share more crafty creations with you.
