Happy Birthday to Tracy!!

*** For the Paper Playtime DT Challenge, please scroll down. ***
Tracy over at Craft Junkie Too is celebrating her birthday today!!
Happy Birthday Tracy!!
If you just came from Tracy's blog, you're in the right spot.  If you just happened upon the CJToo Birthday Bash Blog Hop, please jump one stop back to Tracy's blog so you won't miss a thing! :)


Here is the card I made for Tracy, I hope she likes it!
I got this wonderful pitcher of flowers from Country Life. I used my Gypsy to create the card base using the shadow and welding it together. I always cut an extra shadow to attach to the top of the card base to cover up that flat spot that the welding creates.  

Here is the cute little sentiment stamp, it's from Scrappy Mom's Stamps.

Lots of doodling on this card. I used my white gelly roll pen for the stitches around the shadow as well as the dots and dashes on the flowers. I built these flowers up with a small EK Success set I have (it includes both the 5-petal flower and the small one behind it).  The centers are yellow flower brads.

I created this wonderful easel card by folding the base to stand up against the inside panel.

This is also a Scrappy Mom's Stamp.  I punched it with an EK Success Journaling punch. This piece is mounted up on pop-dots to hold the card up when displayed.

Here is just one final shot of the card.  I adore this sweet card... I really should make some more for my birthday card stash!! :)

I didn't get a picture of my blog candy, but I've bought quite a healthy stash of birthday themed stamps for the lucky winner of my blog candy! Please leave a comment and don't forget to leave me a way to contact you if you win.
Winner will be drawn on Friday, May 27th, 2011

Now, head on over to Shelly's blog at  http://www.carleys-closet.blogspot.com/ to continue on the blog hop trail.

I LOVE this! I have seen this cut before - but the way you did it up with the details is amazing. It has so much personality and I love the combo of doodle dots and stitching lines, they seem especially fitting for Tracy since she loves to doodle :)

Jamie said...

Oops scrolled down to far to comment and put I loved the card as well as all of the doodling. But I did also love the other card if that counts any. :)
