For the background, I stamped a Hero Arts star stamp and a PTI sentiment. The card needed something else....so I layered a few EK Success border punches and bling, bling, bling!
So...obviously, this card would not fit in a normal envelope, and I didn't want to just hand it to her....so I scoped out SplitcoastStampers and came across this tutorial for a Card Purse. The purse should hold a few cards and envelopes, but not mine, since it was so bulky.
I followed the tutorial...and added this cute little Poppy Stamp birthday girl, paper piecing her outfit and the balloons:
Cute right? BUT......when I took pictures of the card and the purse together, I wasn't happy. They didn't go well with each other - even though I used the same paper. As I was out for a walk.....it hit me......she needs to be holding a pinwheel instead of balloons!
So, that night......I made a mini-pinwheel and glue it over the balloons:
So, I was bit happier with the final result of the pinwheel. Yes - I'm anal retentive!!!
Hope you have a great Sunday!!!
Thanks for your visit!
