I have been at home all month recuperating from foot surgery. I can’t drive myself anywhere. Do you know how hard it is to blog when you don’t have internet at home? Needless to say I did my project incorrectly the first time and had to do a quick chane to fit the theme. I totally forgot that we were supposed to use a color other than black. I had to redo my sentiment. Black StazOn did better on the vellum, but it didn’t fit the theme. Instead, I used a blue from Close to my Heart.

I worked with a set of digi papers from Stitchy Bear called Garden Fairies Paper Pack 2. I chose this pack because two of the papers had adorable fairies on them and I wouldn’t need to use another image. I made an easel card using the papers from this pack. I made a larger image for the outside and then made a smaller one for the inside. I printed the paper with the fairy on glossy paper because the image looked sharper. The other papers I printed on regular cardstock. The butterflies were cut out of scraps of the glossy paper using a stamp and die set from Sizzix. The grass was done using alcohol inks on white scraps of glossy paper and cut out with a Magnolia Doohickey Grass die. I found the flowers on clearance at Hobby Lobby and attached them to the grass with hot glue. I colored pearls with alcohol ink and attached them to the center of the flowers also using hot glue. The sentiment was done on vellum. I would have done the birthday greeting in blue also had I remembered what the challenge was, but I wasn’t going to waste the paper or redo the card. Here are all the pictures.

Hopefully I will be able to drive soon and get back to normal, avoiding this mistake in the future.

We hope that you will join us for this challenge. I look forward to seeing your work.
