It’s a Saturday morning, and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with myself, now that my guest spot with Dynamic Duos is finished! I’ve had my Saturday morning posts pretty much all lined up for me through September, so I had to work up something else for today. 😉
I wasn’t sure these colors were meant for a birthday card, but I am usually in need of a birthday card, so I went with that theme. The great thing about my family is that I can usually find some wonderfully ‘unconventional’ soul who will appreciate my unconventional cards. 😉
The flower is another one made from coffee filters. I love the type of bulk that can be achieved with these! They add so much depth while still being squishable for mailing.
I used some MFT dies and a Sweet & Sassy sentiment, along with a few rhinestones and a lovely little brad. I have no idea what brand that brad is. It’s been sitting in my stash for so long, out of its original package, no less. I’d like to guess Making Memories, but it really was so long ago, I hardly remember. Sorry!
I took a bit of liberty with the banner elements from the sketch, using the Leafy Flourish die cuts in place of the top and bottom banners.
I used some DCWV shimmer cardstock for the purple touches, so it has a little bit of a subtle shine to it in those spots.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
