My son's birthday party is coming up this weekend. I was working on a card for him (which I will share later) and had two of these images stamped. The image is from Lili of the Valley and is called Surprise! I decided to play around with one of the images and try my had at the dotted background that I often seen other bloggers doing. I'm not so sure I'm very good at it, but it was fun as something different to try.
I wanted to tone down the patterned papers (Atlantic paper pad from Studio Calico) that I chose so I painted them with white acrylic paint (slightly watered down) and let them dry before assembling my card.
dog: E23, E25, E27, E29, E21
cake: R30, R32, YR20, YR21, E23, E25, E27
candles: BG11, BG13, W7, Y17, YR15
background: W0, W1, W3, W5, W7
The flowers and filigree corner are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley's Mixed Circular Sentiments set.
Again, the charm was purchased on ebay. I'm playing along with a few challenges: the current Ribbon Girl challenge which is Anything Goes as long as
you use a Lili of the Valley image, the A Creative Romance challenge which is Pink, and the current Lili of the Valley challenge which is Anything Goes.
It's my oldest son's birthday party this weekend. I can't believe he is going to be 10 already! Time really does fly once you start having kids. It doesn't even seem possible. Fun times to be had with family.
I hope you all have a great weekend, too!
