It's my SIL's birthday so we've been busy making cards at my house.
Through Soartful challenges, I found two images, the Enchanted Castle and Gowned Lady, from Pringle Hill Studios. I actually figured out how to layer a png file with a jpeg file to create the image. This lovely lady,wearing a Stickle sparkled gown, is walking back to the castle for some birthday cake. I used the July sketch challenge from Simply Crafting Scraps:
Now I'd like to introduce you to the wonderful work of two young ladies who are new to the world of card making:
DD1 knew exactly what she wanted. Falling in love with the Maya Road owls, she chose two and searched my stash for the perfect branch for them to perch on. (branch actually an arm from Tim Holtz' snowman grungeboard) She hunted for a specific color green which she found on the Prima Flower cardboard packaging. So we cut the center out for her card mat. I suggested using a couple of Spellbinder's Nestabilities for a focal point. After looking through my handful of Happy Birthday stamps, she chose to use part of the SU stamp as a branch for her owl.
She dug through the button box and came up with this assortment, added twine, and turned them into flower centers. Same SU sentiment stamp.
Aren't they both so talented? Since I recently started my hobby, we didn't make cards or scrap together when they were younger. There were other crafts such as the Magic Oven, dough ornaments, and puff painted tee-shirts. It would have been fun to have been scrapping together all that time. But it's something new and fun for us to do together now.
