Today’s card is based on The Paper Players Sketch Challenge 160 and is a birthday card for my oldest niece, Shauna. Shauna will be 17 and is a beautiful, kind and caring girl. She is hoping to go into Veterinary School and has already spent time a local vets offices during her Christmas, Spring and Summer break. I’m very proud of her and the young woman she is becoming.
Here is my card for her….
…and here is the sketch that inspired it
About the card
1. When I saw the sketch it just looked obvious to me that the circle should be a peep through. I used paper from Gingham Garden as the background with a few little butterflies with pearls cut from the other side of the paper to fill the scalloped circle.
2. I used the Chevron Border Punch to make my little Chevrons. Easy peasy with the ‘left overs’ from the punch.
3. When I first made this card, I didn’t have any embossing on the so Saffron and it just looked too plain. The cloud folder from the Spring Mini Catalogue was perfect.
What I used
Stamps: none, Ink: none, Paper: Gingham Garden, Island Indigo, So Saffron, Whisper White (inside), Accessories: 1 3/8 Scallop Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Chevron Border Punch, pearls.
Well, how did I do? Drop me a comment and thanks for stopping by the Owlery today!!
