Tale Tales quick card


My friend, Mary and I, were able to play some challenges this weekend.  It had been a long time since we did!  What fun!  I needed to make up some cards for posting, too, so it came at a good time!

This card was inspired by a layout that Mary found over on SCS.  VERY simple.  In fact, I joked that I would be done in two seconds.  But, sometimes I find the simple ones are harder for me to do.  Too many directions I could go with not a lot of design room.  But, this one did come together pretty easy. 

Almost no stamping.  I used a base of Old Olive.  Cut a strip of Tale Tales Designer Paper and layered it on Chocolate Chip cardstock.  Stamped the Happy Birthday greeting from On Your Birthday with Chocolate Chip ink.  Then I used Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper scrap laying on my desk and the Cherry Blossom Embosslit die for the flower, sanding it a little for some extra texture, then adding a Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button in the center of the flower!  Finally, punched the 5 petal flower from Old Olive and cut two of the petals off for the leaves.  I sponged Melon Mambo around the flower and Always Artichoke around the leaves for extra dimension.  It is popped up with dimensionals on the front of the card.

Busy week for me….I have to get ready for Punch Class on Wednesday night and my Acrylic Mini Scrapbook Album class on Sunday!  Plus, we have two business dinners to attend on Friday and Saturday night.  Yuk!

Have a wonderful week!
