I have a shared weekend birthday with a very young friend of mine, she is just 18 and is going away to college. My daughter and her are friends and I adopted her as a daughter a few years back. Lizzy helped me into blog land and set me up and fixes things when I mess them up. I am seeing her later today and wanted to give her this birthday card, made especially for her.
My Kraft paper is from MME Funday by Robyn Meierette. It is a 6x6 pad that I used for my base, tag and base under Tilda. I inked the edges with black and craft white from SU. First I made a Spellbinders Romantic rectangle in cream and then embossed it with Papertrey Inks' wood background. Over that is a tag from Prima's Songbird Collection. Then I did a Magnolia tag in kraft with a yellow gingham doily die from Papertrey Ink behind the Magnolia tag. Then went Tilda after sewing her onto kraft paper.
The Birthday Wishes sentiment is Papertrey Ink stamped onto Maya Roads ticket. Tilda with a Gift for you is colored in Distressed Ink Markers. This is new for me, I like some of them but some of the colors are a bit different from the ink bottles. I used Mustard Seed and Vintage photo together and then Dried Marigold and Pumic Stone together. Her hair is Walnut, shoes Pumice Stone and skin Tea Dye.
I put a bag inside for a pocket full of birthday wishes for Lizzy to read, while she is gone, she can remember how we feel about her! The real card does not have a dot on Tilda's face, for some reason she does on photos.
The complete inside, and my computer enhanced it too yellow, sorry about that, it is kraft color.
Just wanted to try this card outside on my porch in different light to get the true colors.
I would like to enter the following Challenges
Please remember my birthday candy ends tonight!! I will announce the lucky winner tomorrow!
Have a great day!
