this card by Virginia Lu. I save all my Kleenex box tops now--love how they have a detailed edge. I inked it up with Walnut Stain DI to highlight the detail.
I also LOVE that ribbon--sort of a perrywinkle colour. Reminds me of hydrangeas. It was also the colour of my bridesmaids dresses 6 years ago, so it's definitely a colour I'm always drawn to. Love how easily the silky ribbon ties into a bow as well.
Since I liked my Easter card so much, I created a similar Baby congratulations card. I just found out this week that my cousin and her husband are expecting their first child! I know they've been trying for a while--so I was so excited to hear the news. I originally made it for the Embellish challenge, but realized after I made it that the challenge asked for Light Aqua, not Baby Blue (silly me). The challenge also asked for stitching, "sew" that's why I hand-stitched all the buttons!
I stamped a small button from PTI Tiny Valentine set repeatedly with Versamark ink. I also stamped my new Hampton Art background definition stamp with Versamark onto the PTI Sweet Blush card base.
Okay--gotta run and get ready for first day of swimming lessons--my 3 year old is starting his Tadpole class, and I'm in the pool at the same time with my 9 month old for a Waterbabies class!! Have a great weekend--I'm hoping to get some crafting time later this evening!
Thanks 4 your time!
