happy Birthday...CR84FN55 Week 2 45

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, June 2, 2012 @ 8:55 PM | , , , ,

Hello there! It's quite hot here in the desert which makes for great crafting weather once I sneak my bike ride in during the wee early morning hours :) It's week #2 of the CR84FN55 Color Challenge ~ so many pretty projects already!
I made yet another Birthday card for a dear friend of mine using a combination of pretty patterned paper from the Pink Paislee London Market Collection, Spellbinders dies, PTI stamps as well as a few of their coordinating dies. 
 After die cutting and stamping the Peony and leaves, I added a layer of glitter ~ I think it sort of adds a dew kissed look.
 For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current retro sketches challenge:
