Hello lovely crafters.
I bought a stamping magazine last week even though I'd decided not to buy any more stash for a bit. I saw it at a great price here so that was that. Sorry if I'm leading you astray too.
To assuage my guilt I made a card immediately!
I added the dots after 'It's your birthday' as I feel it's rather like saying 'You've had your hair cut'. You usually know both of these things.
I've glued all the flowers straight down so the card is quite flat even though it gives the impression of dimension. I'm challenging myself to colour as I'm not great at it. These turned out ok, I think.
So inside I added a 'Let's celebrate' and a couple of spare flowers:
I'd cut and coloured the flowers when I saw the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches and thought that would work well here.
I'm also entering this into Mrs A's Butterfly challenge #75 Butterflies + R is for Repeat and/or the colour Night sky.
I've repeated the flowers and the blue border and butterfly are 'Night sky' colours though I have seen purple too, on occasion, green may be pushing it but maybe in a thunderstorm (or the Northern Lights!)
Also popping over to Pixies Snippet's Playground. My snippets mountain is mostly white so I've used a few here. Everything bar the card base is snippets. It's lovely weather for running around with friends.
All the stamps are from the Creative Stamping #41 apart from the butterfly which is from JustRite Lilies and Butterflies. There is a butterfly with this set but it was a bit too big for this card.
I've coloured with Pro-markers and added a Wink of Stella on the butterfly and flower centres.
I hope you've had the beautiful weekend weather we've had. Enjoy your week.
