Welcome delightful friends and family! It is officially the weekend (well almost, it's not quite 5p.m.)! Hope you have some fun plans, I have to work on Saturday and it's my dh's birthday (boo-hoo!) but I'll get off an hour early and I hope to pick something up for him then. I need to get him a new electric razor. He's on aspirin therapy and agressive meds to keep his blood thin, so those stents they just put in will stay open and heal! So, no more sharp blades on his face and neck or he'll never stop bleeding!!
Today's card is a little bit of a stretch for me. I do not usually do the vintage/shabby chic (as much as I love the style, it's out of my comfort zone!) But this Bo Bunny paper (Gabrielle Collection) did most of the work for me (whew!). I added the flowers (Glimmer Misted them with Marshmallow) and layered them, with a little tail of silver ribbon from American Crafts; I love this "Elegant Swirls die" (Sizzix - Tim Holtz Alterations), and it's hard to tell in the photo, but I applied Ranger Stickles (Gunmetal) and after that dried, I added Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Marshmallow) to the kraft card stock (all card stock is Bazzill), if you are interested in seeing the shimmer, you'll have to click to enlarge. I also used just a little bit of Ranger Perfect Pearls (pearl) to the butterflies wings (just a dusting) and Tiny Twinkles (Taylored Expressions) to the butterfly bodies as well as the around the Swirl. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions (Care & Comfort set) and the ink is Palette black, also used around the sentiment. The other bling comes from my stash (brad and adhesive rhinestones) The finished card is A2.
