How was/is your day so far?
Today I finally had the chance to finish my card for the challenge over at CR84FN.
The moment I looked at the colors I knew I wanted to make a card for Marcels' mother; she will be 72 years on August 13th.
We're celebrating her birthday in the UMCG; Marcels' father is still there and it's the only place to get together and share some time with my in laws, my SIl, her children and our family. Just a small party, not too long. But Marcels'mother definitely wants to eat cake and have a good time. My in laws really want to celebrate this special day.
Over to the challenge!
Just look at the gorgeous colors:
I decided to create my own patterned paper with different stamps from my favorite brands....
A polka dot stamp and a floral stamp from Darkroom Door; seam binding from Pixie Dust Paperie , some sittching and a heart-shaped pearl from my stash:
One of the Text-it stamps from Waltzingmouse stamps and more stitching.
The sentiment is from the Fancy Phrases set from Waltzingmouse stamps:
My sister Jacqueline ( you know the bride from yesterday :)...) gave me a package with doilies; this is a quarter of one of them. The flower is from Prima; I hope it's not too much pink. The outside of the flower really is lavender...
I'm very pleased with the final result.
Here is my card:
Off to post my card...
Enjoy your day/evening!
