Big Bow Birthday:



Good morning Friday!!!!  May I say, thank GOODNESS for Fridays.  I just love the weekends so much!  Tomorrow I am off to find some new glasses, apparently I have double vision and I can't wait to "fix" the problem.  Crafting will be so much easier.  Right now I am peering over my old glasses and hurting my neck a lot.  I am positive that I will be crafting for hours on end now ;)

Today I am sharing another vintage card with you all.  I can't believe how long it takes to master inking.  It's taken me months! (not saying I am a master by any means)...

*Ugh*...  I obviously just got up... I am doing that babble thing again...

Card Ingredients:  Waltzing Mouse sentiment;  Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap and CraftSmart Gold and Chocolate inks;  BasicGrey Little Black Dress and Tim Holtz Crowded Attic papers;  DCWV cardstock;  BasicGrey chipboard flower;  Labels 4 and 18 Nesties;  Celebrate It ribbon;  Martha Stewart baker's twine;  Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch;  Recollections pearls;  vintage button.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this birthday card for the following challenges:  BasicGrey - something new with BasicGrey (see above for ingredients - they are all new!);  DYSU - pattern paper;  PaperPlay - ribbon every which way;  The Play Date Cafe - use slate, moss, bark, and burlap;  Waltzing Mouse Sketch - use sketch 80.








Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend!

You are certainly becoming a "master" of inking. This is a gorgeous card, all the beautiful combination of papers, but that gorgeous bow really does steal the show on this one. Great job.
