Today is a Design Team Day over at Paper Playtime! :) The theme this time is to make a card (or other project) and to include a charm.
I think this card is so fun! I cut the card base from "Tie the Knot". I won this card from a DT Challenge awhile back but have just started playing with it. I love this cut! SO sexy. :)
The card base it cut from cream colored shimmer card stock. All layers are just generic card stock (the pink and black are scraps).
I used my white Gelly Roll pen to add the doodling around the black layer. I really love how it looks with the black stitched ribbon. The Happy Birthday is from Scrappy Mom's Stamps.
I tied the bow with my Bow Easy and used hot glue to attach it to the card base. Here you can see the rhinestone flower I added to the charm wire. I threaded the wire through the bow before attaching it to the card.
My wonderful charm really is a Frankenstein embellishment! :)
The little flower charm is from a flea market (as is the wire I made the pin from) and the rhinestone flower is from a broken bracelet my sons found at a playground last year. It was actually a string of these rhinestones, so maybe you'll be seeing more of them in the next few weeks or so. :)
