Once again, it's time for the monthly Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
This month's challenge was to be inspired by this photo.
After seeing the photo, I immediately thought of a piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper
that I'd recently added to my collection.
I decided to use it to create a card and a layout for the challenge.
Here's my card:
I used the patterned paper as my background.
Can you see how a few of the circles are gold & shiny? That's why I chose it!
I created a thin border with some berry sorbet card stock (inspired by the thin border around the card in the photo) & stamped my sentiment (from Wet Paint) in aqua mist and heat embossed the "birthday" in gold.
Next, here's the layout:
I used the same patterned paper and created a thin border once again.
I stamped my title using Wet Paint Alphabets in versa mark and heat embossed it in gold.
This little typewriter is a Crate Paper Maggie Holmes embellishment.
I stamped the sentiment onto it -- it's a mix of sentiments from MM: February.
This tag & gold heart are also Maggie Holmes.
I stamped behind them with my Scribbled Circles stamp.
I was inspired by the envelope in the photo and decided to create a vellum envelope in which to tuck my journaling.
The "sweetheart records" embellishment is Maggie Holmes,
which I adhered to some sweet blush card stock that I'd die cut using Edgers #5 to make the tab.
Thanks for looking!
