Lovely Day

Today I have a fun birthday card to share with you!!

CTMH: Hopscotch

Starting with a Colonial White Cardstock Base, I layered multiple B&T Duos™ from the Hopscotch Paper Packet-including the Glacier Cardstock. I know gold is a popular trend right now and I am on that bandwagon! I LA-LOVE it! I used the Artiste Cricut® Cartridge to cut two feathers, next I grabbed my VersaMark™ Ink Pad and smudged the tip of the feather with the ink pad, then I sprinkled Gold Embossing Powder over the VersaMark™ and with a little heat—Violá—gold tipped feather. Before I started adhering the layers of the card, I added a few rows of zigzag stitching on the light blue cardstock. The sentiment is from the Lovely Birthday Stamp Set and is stamped in Pacifica Exclusive Ink™.  Let’s not forget the finishing touches which SURPRISE are gold accents-the Gold Sequins and Gold Shimmer Trim.

I’m linking this card up to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. My eye was immediately drawn to the panel on the right hand side of the sketch, but I went a little unconventional and used stitching for the panel versus a piece of cardstock or B&T.  I’ve said this over & over- this is the thing I love about sketch challenges-they are up for complete interpretation!!
