Hi there, again! After missing Week No. 29 I thought I better make this a stunning card. This week at PaperPlay Challenge we are asking you to Layered It Up. So bring out your card stocks, your pattern paper, your foam squares or dimensional adhesives. I combined a variety of items onto my card....But before we begin I should show you my inspiration and all-time favorite challenge site... :)
I keep putting off to ink my rooster from French Country, so I decided I had to use it no matter what. Yep, yep...the rooster is sort of iconic in my life, since I am a rooster by chinese zodiac. It's also such an iconic part of the kitchen, which you all know is my favorite part of the house!
Stamps: (French Country, Dainty Doily - Large Set, Oval Classic Frames) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Lemon Tart, Kraft) Papertrey Ink; (Lost & Found - Portobello Road) My Mind's Eye
Ink: (Versamark) Tsukineko; (Jenni Bowlin - No. 11 Brown Sugar, No. 9 - Spice Tin; Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Antique Linen) Ranger
Embellishments: (Mister Huey - Shine) Studio Calico; (Luxe Satin Ribbon - Lemon Tart) Papertrey Ink; (Epoxy Brad - Moravia) SEI
Started out with Lemon Tart card stock base and found this beautiful light blue pattern from My Mind's Eye. I would have added a layer of stitching but I was busy watching the Olympics and didn't find the right moment to dart back into the craft room. I also inked up the edges with some Antique Linen - my favorite distress ink.
This center piece is created out of three layers: the brown oval frame on kraft that I also watermarked with the reoccurring doily pattern, the brown doily on the same pattern paper, and then finally the rooster. I also found this gorgeous brad from an old SEI collection that I just love - it's so French Country, isn't it?
The rest of the card is just a sweet little sentiment - and since I'm always short on Birthday card, I thought I should pop this cute "Bon Anniversaire" on there. I love the font...just like perfectly handwritten script.
Hope you like this little wee card. Hop on over to see how the rest of the PPC girls used a die! Hope you will be playing along with us this week...After all, everyone always needs Birthday cards, right?
