SFYTT April/TSG151 - Happy Birthday

Hello again!  Thanks for stopping by!   I was able to sell a few cards through my Crafty Cre8tions Facebook page!!  I was also asked to make a few Calla Lily cards.  Here are two of the birthday cards I created using There She Goes calla lily stamps while playing along with the TSG151 Challenge to use ribbon:

For this first card - I went back to the Sketch For You To Try April layout but tweaked it a little.  I used ribbon instead of another cardstock panel.   I once again used my prismas to create a purple calla lily and a PTI sentiment heat embossed in white.


I wanted to try something a bit different for this card.  I first used my nesties to cut the oval on white cardstock. I stamped my image, colored it with prisma pencils and then decided that I would use the same nestie to die cut the front of the card, creating a window.  I lightly traced 4 areas of the inside of the oval so I would know exactly where to place the image inside.

I added some ribbon, a PTI sentiment and some bling!!!  In real life the ribbon matches the flowers really well - not so much in my picture though!   These window cards are always a challenge for me to take pictures of!

I've got one more calla lily card coming up - but that picture came out awful - so I have to re-take it!

Have a great day!!


Thanks for your visit!
