My Besties Card

Hello everyone!  Happy first day of Spring!  We had snow flurries yesterday and are expecting a coating to an inch of snow tonight--so much for Spring.  It seems the seasons are confused anymore.

Today, I have a card using a sweet Sherri Baldy My Besties stamp.  I made it for Valentine's Day but feel it can suit any occasion.

The card base was made with grey Bazzill cardstock.  Once again, I used a lot of older craft supplies such as the patterned paper.  The wide lace trim is from Webster's Pages.  The flowers are Prima and Recollections.  I felt they matched the paper perfectly.  The diecut leaves are Prima which I inked in Pumice Stone Distress Ink and highlighted with glitter.  The image was colored with Copics and framed with a die from Wild Rose Studio.  The rhinestone heart and beads are from my stash.  If you click on the photo, you can see that I added rhinestones to the flowers on the girl's dress and shoes.  The "sweet" word block and resin flower tucked under the bow was in the pack with the large purple flower.  A simple satin bow is the final touch.

It is difficult to see here, but since the card base is grey, I used white cardstock and a decorative die to provide space for writing on the inside of the card.

Today is a special day in our home.  It is our son's 26th birthday.  How quickly that time has flown!  It is so important to savor each moment in time.

Have a wonder week ahead!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I appreciate each comment left.
