Chalk Talk ~ Sketched Birthday

A fun gallery from the featured stamper today.  "stampinandstuff"

Her first was a gift box which I converted to a card.  Hers ~  Baby Box  ~ is a cute idea, but I needed another boy birthday card!

I had fun making this. 
I used Squares & Chalk Talk Collection Framelits Die and colored with Blendabilites.  My cardstock colors are Marina Mist, Whisper White and Polka Dots dsp.
Congratulations to the featured stamper on Split Coast Stampers.

Petite Petals ~ Gorgeous Grunge

Fun colors today for the color challenge on split coast stampers!

Hello Honey...Blackberry Bliss...Very Vanilla

I used VersaMark with clear embossing powder on the flowers.  Could not pick it up with the camera.  But they are shiny. 
I am loving the new Hello Honey ribbon.  Looks like a delightful gold on some cards.
Our dessert today was to use splatters on our card and this is the reason for the fun splatters on my card.
No sentiment...I will probably use this for a birthday card at a later date.
Thanks for stopping by...

The scallop circle is cut out using the Circle Collection Framelits Dies. 

The background is Pretty Print Embossing Folder. 

I also used the Delicate Doilies for my doily. And some Basic Jewels.

And a pretty bow from the Blackberry Bliss.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

A Dozen Thoughts ~ Four Frames ~ Swallowtail

The colors for today are So Saffron, Bermuda Bay and Blackberry Bliss.  Was a bit skeptical, but they are a delight together!

Dessert is to use a sentiment on the card.

I am sending this one to my granddaughter in Germany.  She told me she loves getting mail and I know she also loves butterflies.

From My Heart

The sketch challenge today has reached 500!  So the challenge is to pick an old one from 400-499.  I picked SC413 as I missed that week and it looked fun!

My take on it ~
