Now on to the real reason I'm posting. My cousin told me on Friday that it was her boyfriends birthday on Sat. WHAT~! Why didn't she say something sooner. I hate to be late on cards... (even though I usually am.. lol) So to my desk to make a B-lated birthday card and of course, make it so that it matches some challenges.
One of my favorite challenges, Oh La La Creations- Challenge #50 said to use a button, bow & Bling.. Now this card was for a big burly guy and for some reason buttons and bows don't come to mind.. I got the bow slipped in but buttons.. it just didn't seem right so here is what I did. The middle of my flower is a button and then I put part of the sentiment on it and popped it up. They didn't say how to use the button.. Hope it's not cheating.. heheh.
Part of my new stash of stamps I got this week was a set from Craft Lounge - Lil Pea-Nut. The elephant is one stamp and the bubble blower and bubbles is another so I did some masking and made him hold the blower in his trunk. You can't see it but the bubbles have Crystal Effects so they have some dimension on them. The grass and the flowers are also little stamps that came with the set and I did masking for that also. The sentiments "I Blew It.." & "Sorry I Forgot" are also from set.
The flower is a punch I just bought at a garage sale for $3.00. It's a Marvy punch. I also bought a set of stamps (never opened or used) for $3.00 (it had the original price of $24.99 on them) which are Doodlebug Design - Tags. That is the scroll around the "Sorry I forgot", I stamped it and then cut it out. What finds !!!
