Scootin' Happy Birthday

Hi there!!

Today i'm sharing a card i made i don;t know how many weeks ago!! I recently cleaned off my craft desk and put all my extra embellishments, die cuts, stickers, paper scraps, etc all in this small dish with semi-high sides. The dish (full of stuff) sits on my desk and is kind of in the way, but as you probably noticed in past posts, i am committed to using up all the stuff in this dish!! And almost everything on this card comes from that dish!! Yay!

For Christmas i received the remaining Distress Markers i was missing and colored up a storm!! Several of those colored images are in my dish, just hanging out waiting to be used! Well for this card i used one! Cute little Penny Black's Mimi riding on a scooter!!

I trimmed the watercolor paper that i stamped and colored Mimi on. One edge i cute with a die, the negative of a notepad (should have flipped it around, but i like it regardless) Next i wrapped black twine around the panel and tied it in a bow.

I also found in my dish a flower journal card from who knows what, from who knows when!!! heheh!! :D I thought the flowers matched the colors i used to color Mimi, so i rounded the corners and adhered my Mimi panel to it. I stamped the simple Happy Birthday sentiment, then i adhered the whole thing to my card base with foam dots.

Have a great day!!

  1. Great coloring, she is so cute! I really love the floral edge on the card and layering!

  2. I love how the distress markers colour - almost watercolory. Just beautiful! And that flower panel is perfect. Love the idea of the dish - I could use one of those too, but I doubt I'm organized enough to remember to USE it, lol!

  3. Cute, cute, cute! Again, fabulous colouring! Gotta love it when the 'dish' is filled with such adorable discoveries, waiting to be used! The paper = excellent match! Sweetness,+++
