Tomorrow is my Godchild's birthday and in my usual always-late-birthday-gift-giver form I just sat down to make her card today. I am notoriously horrible at birthdays. I can remember my immediate family - at least the dates - but that's about it. I think it runs in my side of the family because we all do it. We like to say it makes the celebration last longer when you get your gift weeks after your birthday. Anybody out there with me? No? Oh well, I try...
I've had some new stamps from MY FAVORITE THINGS sitting on my table for a while so I chose this cutie-patootie ALL STAR A LA MODE set to work with. This gal is perfect for Erin because she's a terrific teenager and this girl is not only cute but cool too! I based my card on this week's MFT WEDNESDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE #13.
As for supplies, I can't get enough of the new EASY ROSETTE and GRASS CUTUPS die from THE CAT'S PAJAMAS and incorporated them here. I used my favorite cloud paper from October Afternoon. The pink polka-dot is OA too. The green is Cosmo Cricket and the text background paper is from SU! I tried to make my bottom layers a little "scrappy" and added a piece of Heidi Swapp decorative tape that's been hiding in my drawer. A button, some brads and delish twine from The Twinery finish it off. Oh, and I finished the inside as well. The MFT gals are the queens of this stuff so I just took their lead and followed along. I don't usually finish my card insides but I do think it looks really nice...who knows, could become a habit. The inside sentiment is from A Muse.
Happy Birthday, Erin...your gift is coming!!
