It's a sweet Sunday indeed - it's Canada Day, I'm visiting my sweet friend Karen and I finally made Karen's birthday card! I told her it would be hand delivered which brought me some time :)
I used this weeks SSSC162 and a ton of fun things in her stamp room - I'll tell you my shopping list is growing by the day!!
I stamped the sweet PI girl from Out on a Limb in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics. The paper is MME Lime Twist Life of the Party with some SU Kiwi Kiss for the base. I followed the sketch exactly, using a mix of MFT dies for the flowers: Perfect Petal Trio, Prima Donna Petals and Button Quartet with a couple of Leafy Flourish. The MFT Small Scallop Border is in SU Chocolate Chip and I used some of my beautiful pleated ribbon in SU Baja Breeze - LOVE this ribbon! A tiny twinkle on her shoe and some rhinestones on the flowers finished it off.
Now Karen is a great one for saying "just try it". So I did exactly that - I tried sewing zig-zag on a circle!! It was very slow and I clearly made some errors but I just need to try it more! I also did the inside of my card with a piece of leftover pattern paper.
I loved making it and Karen loved receiving it! Happy belated-but-hand-delivered Birthday my friend!!
