Birthday Challenge

 I just love this little Fhiona.  Her windy fall  scene is just precious and perfect for our recent weather.  So, using this adorable stamp, I created this card for a special friend/family member in NJ.  

There may be a little too much orange on this, but, over all, I really like it.

I embossed the background layer with some swirling leaves and added some pearls as the centers to some of the flowers on the border die cut.

I totally love the corner die.  It just wraps around the image so well and adds so much.

Fhiona is colored with Copics and the background was airbrushed.  The sentiment layer was, also, airbrushed.

The inspiration for this card was from the Your Next Stamp Challenge.  I chose the sketch for inspiration.

Have a beautiful day! :)

A Little Bit of Crafting....

Creation time!!  Yippee!  I didn't get to create much during October. Well, at least not with paper.  I did a lot of fabric work and even made a ship costume for .... a horse. Yep.  My daughter was a pirate and needed the horse she was riding to be a ship.  That took quite a bit of time.  But ... she and Sly won 1st place! :)

This card was suppose to be to the recipient yesterday, but that just didn't happen.  Hopefully, she will still like it when it gets there this week.

It's a simple card, but I worked hard on the airbrushed background.  I love the effect the airbrush has. It's so smooth.  

The stamps were all from SU.  They certainly gave the effect that I wanted.  The silhouette of the flowers along with the background just work well together, I think.

I hope all of you are having a great Saturday.  It's really hard for me to believe that it's already November.  At least, I get an extra hour of sleep tonight. :)
