Paper Craft Crew 100 and a Birthday!

Today is a very special day because it’s a very special person’s birthday! Today is Andrew’s birthday! Happy birthday to one of the best friends that anyone could ever hope for! He has been the biggest help with all of my stuff going on lately and I owe him big time! LOL! So happy birthday my friend and I hope that you have a day just as awesome as you are!! I’ll post his card as soon as I get to give it to him! 🙂

Today is Wednesday which means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCCS100 7-02-2014

WhenI saw the sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the middle panel and then the rest of the card just fell into place! The card starts off with a base of So Saffron Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Lullaby Designer Series Paper Pack. My middle panel is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with one of the stamps from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set in Crisp Cantaloupe. I backed it with a piece of Pistachio Pudding and adhered it to the card. A strip of adhesive cork sheet goes across the middle instead of ribbon. The wood banner and bird are also from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set and are both stamped in So Saffron. The wood banner is cut out with the Banners Framelits and the bird with my Paper Snips. My greeting is from the And Many More Stamp Set and is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar on Pistachio Pudding and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits. I used the fork method to tie a tidy little piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Baker’s Twine into a bow and adhered it to the banner with a Mini Glue Dot. I love the soft colors and my favorite part is the way the flower stamped background turned out! I really hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Pop by the BLOG and see the other designers creations and add yours so I can take a peek! There is also some blog candy up for grabs! Thank you so much for your visit, have a great day!! 🙂
