Just Add Ink #24


Over at the Just Add Ink site (click on the blinkie on the right) there is a cool sketch that is this weeks challenge. So I thought I would kill two stones today - I would enter the challenge and also make a card for my daughters 13th birthday which is on Thursday.

I wanted a card that said something a bit special as she leaves her childhood behind and enters teenagedom! Originally I was going to give her the Always Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze card I made the other day as it says 'Always on my mind, forever in my heart' which is what my children are, but then I wanted something not so somber so I went with the words from the Birthday stamp set that says 'LIVE, LAUGH & LOVE' which is really what every parent would want for their child.

I stamped my favourite Medallion stamp with Pink Pirouette on to Kraft (soon to be called Cookie Crumb) then stamped the words in Regal Rose on Pink Pirouette and cut them out. Added the button with linen thread and layered it on Pink Pirouette and Kraft again. I hope she likes it! In real life the pink is brighter than the photo, I don't know what the weather is like where you are but in Auckland, New Zealand today is very dull so taking photos is a bit difficult. Esp. at 8am in the morning !! lol
Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you have a super day!
