Just Magnolia # 67, FS# 114, MDU#58, CCT #124...Let the Fairy in you Fly!
I needed to make a card for a girl at work. She has been working in our office on contract and she just found out that she has been accepted into the Interpreter Internship Program...very exciting for her but means she will be leaving us soon. Well, I thought I would make her a card to congratulate her on this wonderful accomplishment and exciting new journey to furthering her career goal to becoming an interpreter. It was also a chance for me to play along with some of my favorite challenges!
I used the gorgeous sketch that they have over at Friday Sketchers and I'm also entering this card in the challenge at Just Magnolia...Acetate, the challenge over at Magnolia Down Under...easel card and the challenge at Cute card Thursday...Whateva!!!
Inge gets around the edges of her images but I don't have any of those fab grunge stamps that she has so I looked around my room and tried to find something that would work. I found a camouflage background stamp from a Technique Tuesday set. I thought I would see what that would look like. It was a little risky as I had already coloured my image. I wasn't happy at first but as the Distress ink in Old Paper dried it started to look a little better.
The sketch called for a tag and so I used one of the many clothing tags that I keep and re-purposed it on this card. The cute flowers where on clearance and I think they were 25 cents for a package of 4. For the acetate I used QuicKutz Adhesive Clear Plastic Material and die cut the QuicKutz butterflies and then coated the adhesive side with Glamour Dust. The sentiments are from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Hope you have a stampin' great day!
