My relatives have been gone for only 3 days and it seems like years. We were quite busy and had a blast. My 93 year old grandmother is very spry and on top of everything, I hope I am that lucky!
While shopping with my Aunt Dee, I was connected to a local shop and applied for the Art Crawl in August. Artists showcase their work in our downtown area and people stop by each store or event to enjoy the artistic talents of everyone. If I receive approval, I will be able to showcase my cards and then sell them, instead of hoarding them. I am excited, keeping my fingers crossed!
I chose 3 DP papers for this card, the base is Bazille Basics Wayfarer #304159, The frames are Pink Paislee Collage Press Studio and the accent DP is Echo Park Ballet Dancer #SW804.
I used Spellbinders Floral Ovals and Pink Paislee chipboard lock. I made my own rosettes and various die cuts for the accents.
I used Papertrey Inks' tiny tags to make special birthday wishes
I used Distressed Inks, Shabby Shutters, Pumice Stone and Spun Sugar for the clothing. Her hair is Scattered Straw and vintage Photo. I use Tea Dye for the flesh and tattered rose for the cheeks.
The inside of the card I attached a scalloped envelope so you could put little notes for birthday wishes inside it. I put liquid pearls around the scallop and bottom with some tiny tags.
My Aunt Dee and I, we had to show off our decorating talents. My poor hubby, we redecorated my kitchen-dining room area, and she even sewed my valance the last night they stayed with us. My Aunt and I are a lot alike in many ways, we just had a great time together!
The challenges I am entering:
Thanks for stopping in and having a peak at my newest creation.
Hope you have a glorious week!
