Just Because You’re You Card

This card is for my sister-in-law’s birthday.  She’s a “stand off the page” kind of gal in my book, so I thought her flower should grow right off the card!  I cut a flower from a coordinating paper, adhered my center medallion, and applied the “leaf” sentiment with tape (actually with hot glue first, but wasn’t satisfied, and went with the tape instead!)  I think it will either all squish into the envie, or I may just tape it to the gift bag front.

This is for the Verve “Something Old, Something New” Challenge.  All my Verve stamps are new to me, because I haven’t had them long…and in fact, I only have two sets, so I chose from what I had!  I love both these sets…they are classic “verve” to me, what drew my eye to the company.

Waltzingmouse Challenge Christmas Card

Well, I haven’t felt very well today.  My birthday, last night, I found out I had strep throat.  Bleh!  Starting antibiotics today, but don’t feel like eating, so thought I’d tackle a quick challenge instead for the WaltzingMouse Sketch Challenge this week.  I love their stamps, but haven’t got any yet, so I used some new free cut files I found online and downloaded.  I was anxious to get my Cricut back out again.  I used Core-Dinations Cardstock, a fav of mine, stash ribbon, and cut files.  Thanks for coming by…it’s easy to comment if you’d like to say “Howdy!”
