Today is the Featured Stamper challenge and this week the honour goes to Laurie aka HamiltonGal!!! Laurie sent me a beautiful birthday card this week and I was thrilled to see her honoured today! I was tempted to case the card she sent me, but instead I chose THIS card. I kept the layout, pearls (although I moved them) and the idea of the flower with the sentiment beside it. I really would have liked to put the sewing on, but most people who know me would realise that that is not a particularly good idea!!! :) I changed --- no sewing, different colours, image and sentiment. I decided to make this a Birthday card so it would also qualify for this week's JustRite Stampers challenge JRC_005 to make a birthday card!!! Come join us by using your JR stamps and you could win a $50 gift voucher to JustRite!!!
I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with some deep pink bazzill and more Vanilla that was embossed with the Victoria EF. Then I added three strips of My Mind's Eye Whirlybird DSP and attached a ribbon across them. Over the top of the ribbon is a piece of Old Olive that was cut with the Label 5 Nesties and layered with a vanilla oval stamped on one end using JustRite's Just A Note set. Next I took JustRite's Beautiful Blossoms set and stamped the Geraniums, coloured them with markers and carefully cut them out and popped them up on the oval. To finish I added some Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the Label 5 die cut, a couple of Vintage die cut corners to the top and a big satin bow!
