My dear friend Melissa celebrated her birthday yesterday. She loves bright colors and bling, so this card was made to honor her. She is like a sister to me! I am blessed to call her friend for sure.
This card was made for challenge no. 168 over at Mojo Monday. What a cool sketch it was. I love starting with a sketch! And, I love challenges too.
Here is the sketch:
And this is what I came up with:
Card size: 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Scalloped card front: DCWV
Cardstock: American Crafts and Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Making Memories (I think)
Ribbon: From my stash
Embossing: Cuttlebug (I sure wish you could see this better. It says Happy Birthday, but you have to strain your eyes to see it!)
Scalloped squares: Nestabilities
Flourish: Making Memories
Flower: Paisley Cricut cartridge (cut at 2 1/2", 2 1/4", 2", 1 3/4" with a punched doily (Martha Stewart) and a huge gem brad on top. I also added some Stickles to the petals
Small gems: From my stash -- unknown
