Sunday again.. and Sarah Kay Challenge today is to use the color combo of Purple and Green. LOVE LOVE LOVE this combo. I am also using the challenge to make my MIL's birthday card. She really likes the Sarah Kay images and I picked one of my favorites.. he he favorite top 9 right? This is "Rose's Garden" and I think it is her hair up and the kitten that I just love. I colored her with my Copics, Spica Glitter Pens, white gel pen and my new Copic Multi-liners, copic ink in a tiny fine point marker. Helps with things like the trim on her blouse.
I used papers from Making Memories, and then a lilac card stock for the base and a sage green card stock for the mats. I inked the edges of everything with dark purple ink. Stitched the edges of the mats with white gel pen. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Alota Rubber Stamps. Now how about that stack of flowers! The largest is from Bazzil, two center ones are primas, and the smaller one and the brad is from Creative Imaginations. The leaves are Prima as well.
Now as a little extra the DT of Sarah Kay Weekly Challenge was asked to make an item to match our card. I just happen to have this wonderful clear pail sitting on my desk, and thought it would be perfect to decorate to put MIL's gift into. (Candy and a pair of earrings, lucky it was a small gift this year!) I used all the same items as the card. I put the striped paper inside the pail so it would have the clear over it, then used my Oval Nestibilities to cut out the image. Now I don't know why but I don't have a scallop Nestibilities large enough for the biggest oval... hmmmm so I made my own scallops by punching small hearts with my Fiskar's Heart Squeeze punch and then attaching them to the back of the oval with just the "humps" sticking out the edge. I used a satin ribbon around the top edge and a felt flower from Creative Imaginations. Same large flower on the top.
Oh by the way .... she loved it, her birthday was Friday so I already gave it to her. =)
Off to Sunday morning breakfast with the local gang at the cafe, then we are hoping to work outside some! Hope you have a wonderful Sunday -
