Guess what day it is... it's Friday! Woot woot! And today I have yet another birthday card made for the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #217 and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes. Have I mentioned how much I just love the sketches at MFT Card Challenges? Well I do! And I've been having a blast playing with their sketches.
I always seem to be short-handed when it comes to birthday cards. So, it's always a good thing to make a few extras and have them on hand for those last minutes when you have no time to whip something. For today's card, I used the feather and "birthday wishes" sentiment from the "Fair Feathers" set by Mama Elephant.
I started off by die cutting a stitched rectangle out of kraft cardstock. Then I arranged and cut all the little fish tails/banners. Once everything looked good to me, I stamped the birthday sentiment in Dark Storm onto the beige banner. Next, I stamped the feathers in mint and pink pigment inks, fuzzy cut them and adhered them on top of the banners. I added some clear Wink Of Stella glitter to the feathers. And lastly, I finished my card with a gray baker's twine and adhered the entire stitched panel to the card base.
That's it for today. I hope you like today's card. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
