A very special friend (I'm allowed to say it was Sarn I think 'cos a few other peeps already 'outed' her) had a Birthday recently so I used her favourite SU colours to make her this Birthday card:
- 6" x 6" square white card blank
- SU's 'Island Indigo' card stock, embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder called 'Corner, Flower Vine', for the background
- a snippet of SU's 'Pool Party' card stock, die cut using the Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday' die, and I added a couple of embossed lines along the bottom edge (which don't really show up in the photo)
- a smaller snippet of 'Pool Party', stamped in Memento 'Teal Zeal' using a flower stamp from SU's 'Secret Garden' set then die cut using a matching SU Framelits die
- the leaves were die cut from a snippet of SU's 'Certainly Celery, using another die from the SU 'Secret Garden' set
- butterfly was die cut from more 'Certainly Celery', using SU's 'Beautiful Wings' butterfly Framelits
- little white pearls were added to the centre of the flower and also down the body of the butterfly
Hope you had a lovely day Sarn!
Straight onto this week's picks, and as always I ended up with a mahooooosive list which I had to stick a pin into to select a handful otherwise I'd be here forever :)
Ileana brought this card to show, absolutely divine! So much work and a stunning result.
That brought back a memory, when we lived in Singapore it was my parents' 15th Wedding Anniversary and I'd just cottoned onto the fact that therefore it would be their 'crystal' Anniversary. Off I scurried to the local NAAFI clutching my piggy bank contents and bought what I considered such totally imaginative and appropriate gifts. A jar of bath crystals for Mum and a glass whisky tumbler for Dad (no waaaaay could I run to real crystal). Happy days :)
OK, let's move on from Memory Lane and welcome two new playmates:
Lovely to see you all and hope you come back and play often!
