Having A Party

No, I'm not having a party - just making a birthday card for a friend.  I used a stamp from Art Impressions and paper pieced her dress with some CTMH paper - added some embossing, punched panel, lace, and a flower type gem.  She almost reminds me of a cheerleader with that bottom pleat around her dress....so on the inside I'll put "Three cheers for your birthday"!



I'll enter this in the challenges at Art Impressions (Anything Lacy), Fetch-A-Sketch (Sketch), and over at Creative Craft Challenge2 (Monochromatic Birthday).

Short post here - not chatty today for some reason.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Thanks for stopping by..........

Oh my... I burst out laughing when I saw this! What a hoot this gal is! Great colour combo and colouring Lynn and I like the embossed background. That dotted folder is one of my faves.

Hi Lynn, this card is so funny... and she seems so happy and excited... Sentiment goes so well. Paper piercing looks so dressy.
I just made a card with one of your stamps.
