Over at Card Patterns, Michelle is celebrating their two year anniversary! Congratulations to Michelle for such a great accomplishment!! Last year I worked for Card Patterns and it was such fun! I love the challenge of working with sketches, they pull me in directions I might not have gone.
Here is the sketch...
I had time today to play along, and of course, as I started out I had good intentions with keeping with the sketch, but honestly, I typically go off in my own direction. Note though, I kept with the three's, three corrugated tabs, three buttons, and uh, the rest kind of went my own way.
But I'm ok with that, I totally felt all shabby chic today, so I got out my glittery shabby GCD papers, that is the background- love that teal glitter!!
Then I added my corrugated cardboard- we took a break for a while, and now it's back in my life, I just love it! ( BONUS- it's totally FREE!!!! and recycles!) I added a couple of these printed post it tabs, then I added my shell buttons with twine. I had painted this Tim Holtz label, then I sprayed with chocolate spray mister. I let it dry and ruboned the greeting from a Pebbles pack of them, I added clear glitter all around the outside, and finished with a couple champagne pearls. Then I fussy cut the two bflies and adhered them with some Glue Arts Adhesive squares rolled up.
here's a close up
thanks Michelle for such a great sketch blog, I think you'd be a great neighbor *wink! wink*
