I usually make two cards for my granddaughter's birthday, not least because she's the second-biggest fan of my creations (after my husb, of course). The first one is her official birthday card:
The background is made with a stencil, sponged with distress inks. The butterflies are coloured with a combination of Sharpies and Laurentien markers. What doesn't show up in the photo are the black diamond Stickles on their bodies. I had originally intended to put a sentiment on the front, but decided to let the butterflies speak for themselves. It does say "happy birthday" on the inside.
The second card includes a certificate for a back-to-school shopping trip, so I wanted it to be stylin'.
Stylin', but oh so easy! Both the patterned paper and the cat sticker were gifts from my generous and talented friend Angela. My big contribution, other than noticing that the paper and cat were a perfect match, is the pink rhinestone collar. :P I'm linking this second card up with the current Crafty Creations challenge to show your inner animal. I am, after all, a stylin' cat... at least in my own mind.
