Basic Grey and SRM Unite
Good evening - pure laziness is my reason for not posting last night - just didn't feel like it - I was busy making this birthday card. Got out the new paper collection from Basic Grey - Out of Print - fun collection - love the colors and patterns in the collection - I found the 6 x 6 pad so I was very happy and then did buy a couple of the 12 x 12 sheets. I buy 12 x 12's of the ones that I feel I would the most of - solids and certain prints which would make great backgrounds for cards.
The design of the card is based on the weekly sketch posted on Saturday at Card Patterns. I have not done a sketch for so long. It really was fun. Thanks Card Patterns for the great inspiration.
Susan from SRM Stickers sent me a great care package from CHA - the new SRM Stickers - love - love - love them - thank you Susan and SRM - your thank you card will be made soon.
The border on the card is a Martha Stewart punch that my friend Mary has - she punched me some white borders - I really like the border and glue dots (the minis) fit just perfect between the circles to help hold down the border. The flower is a much reduced flower from Michael's. By reduced - I tore it apart and only used two layers. The great brad and metal in the middle of the flowers are old embellishments from Imaginisce - but they are so beautiful - I am glad I found them to finish off the center of my card. The ribbon was from the dollar bin at Michael's.
Everyone have a wonderful evening - hopefully I will get another card made tonight or laid out.
