My fabulous friend
I am really trying to get better at actually sending cards. I know I am not the only one out there that makes cards and then hoards them. You KNOW who YOU are! ;o) If you don't already know about it, there is this really cool site called birthday alarm that will email you when you have a birthday coming up. That is the only way I can remember birthdays! Lucky for me, they give me a couple of reminders so I have time to procrastinate and still get the cards out on time. This card is for a dear friend's birthday. She really IS fabulous!
I started with a ridinghood red card base 5-1/2" square. I added a bit of white that I had stamped with the canvas background in Cameo Coral and added flowers in summer sun, cameo and riding hood red. I roughed up the edges with my cutting kit and sponged them with more riding hood red. The yellow strip is apricot with a Kiwi Kiss ribbon tied around it. For the flower, I stamped it three times in riding hood red, cameo coral, and summer sun. I cut them out at different parts and then sponged all the edges with riding hood. I layered the different colored flower parts using dimensionals and added rhinestones from the Ice collection.
In other news, I just had to share this picture of my hubby. He was a clown at a dance on Saturday night and looked just too cute. I was supposed to make him a clown outfit, but I happened to find these wild shorts at a local store. I bought two pair and used one to make the tie. The shirt was also from the store. He did his own makeup and hair....doesn't he look cool? He spent the night making balloon animals for all the kids at the dance. He is such a good sport!
