My sample is clean and simple, which is so unlike me!! But, during VSN you only have 45 minutes to complete your card!! This card was actually made from all scraps! Love it when I can do that.
It starts with a base of Real Red and top-folded. The Whisper White Top Note die was originally a card itself, but I used the other side awhile ago. So this layer had the top edge trimmed a bit and this is how I liked it best on the card. I used the leaves from the bird/bamboo image in the Asian Artristry set around the edges in Kiwi Kiss.
The main image was stamped with Whisper White craft and stamped onto basic black. I used my chalks in Real Red and Old Olive to color it in. Backed it with a piece of Kiwi Kiss and paired it with the dragonfly stamped in black staz on onto Real Red.
I used the polka-dot red gg, turned over, alongwith the black gingham for the ribbon. Happy birthday was stamped in black staz on from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
