Happy Birthday Julie! 47

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, September 23, 2010 @ 9:00 PM | , ,




Hi There! Today my sweet friend, Julie Ranae is celebrating a very special birthday! If you get a chance, please feel free to stop by her blog (click HERE) & wish her a Happy Birthday :) For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Bonus Sketch by Kellie Marie Alvarez at 2 Sketches 4 You. If you are looking for some amazing inspiration, please hop on over & see what the DT has created!This card is sweet & simple. I combined a few gorgeous prints of Melissa Frances DP's, a pretty lacy square doily made from a S4-295 Lacey Squares die template & a Mulberry flower.

I inked up a flourish stamp from Seeds of Friendship and stamped just so a little of the flourish would peek out from behind the flower embellishment. I am entering this card in the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC85) which is to create a Celebration card :)

Yesterday, I shared the gorgeous S4-293 Lacey Circles die templates along with samples (click HERE), today, I would like to share the S4-295 Lacey Squares die templates along with all the beautiful doilies that you can create with this particular set of die templates.That's all for today! See you tomorrow for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Thanks so much for looking :)

Supplies Used: Stamps: Flourishes Seeds of Friendship, Flourished Words Stamp Set Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-295 Lacey Squares, S4-140 Petite Ovals SM, S4-139 Petite Scalloped Ovals LG, GC-001 Grand Calibur Paper: Melissa Frances DP
