A Special Card



Hi everyone.  I'm sharing a special card that I gave to my DS and DDIL to celebrate the birth of their first child.  I had so much fun making this card!! :)

I'm getting back into the swing of things and have made a few cards the past few days.  It's so nice to be back in the studio creating.  I'm hoping to have time to play more later today, but have the task of taking down the Christmas tree and decorations today ... always do it on Jan. 2.  Time to move into the new year.

I'm also hoping to clean and organize my studio over the next while.  I have bought/received many new toys lately and need to made room for them.  I was hoping hubby would agree to taking down a wall and me expanding my space ... but apparently, he doesn't think that's a good idea :)  So I need to make do with the room I have and that means getting rid of some items that I've been holding on to for along time, but never use.  Time to downsize!

More about today's card ... the digi image is from Tiddly Inks and the large sentiment I found on a site called Gottapixel.net.  I just googled "a star is born digital stamp" and this came up - perfect!

I printed the image onto my card front and colored it with Copics.  I stamped the gingham pattern in Pool Party ink and paper pieced the blanket and added a strip on the side - love these colors together.

I added some dazzling diamonds to all the stars to give them some sparkle and shine.

  12. Congratulations on your first grandchild - Cooper is so adorable. Love the card too. Glad you are back from a restful (?) holiday! By the way, my favorite of your 5 is the first one - oval with the flowers. I used the idea for a card for a daughter last year.
