I've made a birthday card for a very special lady. I hope she gets this in time for her birthday. I was cutting it very close to the wire--I probably...yikes...have not mailed it out soon enough for it to reach her before her birthday. Oh well... I hope she likes it anyway.
I have also made this card with the following challenges in mind:
All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge --Challenge #1 (new challenge, so this is for their very first challenge) - open theme.
Crafts and Me - Challenge 11 - petals and pearls.
Charizma Cards - Challenge 33 - die cuts.
Just Magnolia - Week 69 - let's get sentimental. I've put the sentiment in the inside of my card: The beauty within you brings joy to those around you.
Friday Sketchers - Challenge 116 - sketch by Beatrix. See her sketch on her blog here.
Magnolia-licious Highlites - Birthday celebration blog hop challenge.
Hmm...I'm not really sure if the shape of the die cut works with this sketch, but I so wanted to try it out and see how it looks on a card. This is a new die cut that I bought while I was on vacation this summer. I haven't seen that shape before.
I don't usually decorate the full pages of the inside of my cards. I normally only put something on half of the pages and left the other half blank to write my personal messages on. But this time I decided to do it differently.
Although I find all the Tildas adorable, I usually have a favorite or two from each collection. This one might just be it from the new Bon Voyage Collection.
Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by. I appreciate your visit very much. Enjoy your day and your week! myblog.
