I'm on my way to a 1-year-old's birthday party. (I made this piggy bank for her birthday.) To make it a bit easier to handle this adventure I got a bit crafty this morning. I used the Stamping Around Inspiration challenge as, well, my inspiration. I picked up the pretty colors and the stacked plates as elements in my card. To be honest, I am pretty excited about this card because it is pretty different from the cards I normally make. I was inspired by the Raise The Bar challenge to mix it up...and I did! I actually sewed. More than that, I sewed beads onto the card. This is my first experience with Gamsol and colored pencils too. All in all, I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out.
