My plan to get a million birthday cards done didn't quite work out, but I did get a few done so I am calling it a success!
My first one was done with an old image from Whipper Snapper and some papers I found way in the back corner of my scrapbook room. I was so lazy that I didn't even want to color this so I dragged it through some Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet spritzed with glitter mist and sponged a bit of barn door and rusty hinge. Seriously you would have laughed if you could have seen how I did this!
My next card was done for the IC challenge on SCS. The challenge was a trip to Ruth Bleakley's Flickr portfolio; she makes handmade books. So inspirational! I did an accordion card with a fun Enid Barnes image I just had to purchase called Ostrich. His look is so wild! His eyes freak me out AND make me smile!
Here is the inside:
Lastly, I did a card for the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS - this week the muse was Penny Ward and I cased THIS gorgeous card in her gallery.
I made my flower with some scraps. I hand cut it. I got distracted and watched flower making videos on YouTube (getting the picture of why I didn't do more cards? LOL). HERE is the link to the video if you want to watch it too (warning - this girl is very very happy but super creative - you will never look at scraps the same way again).
