I think it is so thoughtful when someone asks for a SU Gift Certificate for a friend.
I mean, seriously, aren’t crafting supplies “what a girls wants, what a girl needs?”
(boys too…but the tune playing in my head says girls…lol)
Anyhoo, a sweet lady requested a birthday gift certificate for a family member, and this is the card that will accompany the gift certificate:
I was inspired by Amy O’Neill’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #213 this week.
And, congrats to Amy for being picked as a SU Artisan Team Member for the next year!
I used my blender pens to color the blossoms in the SU Birthday Blossoms stamp set. Of course, I also used my favorite background stamp ever, Hardwood. To make the banner, I used the long, narrow die in the SU Gift Card and Trims Thinlits die set. Since it only has one pennant end, I cut one first and then popped it into the framelit and ran it through the Big Shot on the other end. I use this die a lot because it is long enough to surround a lot of sentiments. I also used some retired Hello Honey DSP on the bottom under the panel to complete the sketch challenge.
A simple birthday greeting on the inside finished off the card …
Love these colors together cindy! Those flowers just sing!
Oh wow Cindy! I adore this card! Your flowers are coloured perfectly and the addition of the blue highlights make them pop! Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!
This is so pretty! The sweet flowers and the Hardwood background – what a combination! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
A beautiful card, Cindy! I love the mix of colors and all of the layers are fabulous. Thanks for the kind words and thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
