Hello friends! I cannot believe that it has been an whole week since I shared a new project with you. All I can say is the winter tummy virus is no fun, and wedding planning is a lot of fun! Bethany, Duncan the wonder dog, and I have all had the tummy thing, but the down time afforded us lots of planning time.
But now it is time for a new project and for the weekly Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. My sweet design team sister, Caroline, selected this week's challenge - a birthday card that includes a number. My card is not hugely festive and birthday looking, but it suits the character of the recipient. She likes denim, flowers, and a touch of vintage! Instead of balloons and party hats, I thought she would like flowers and blue prints far better.
I made my flowers using the Art Philosophy cartridge and textured card stock. After rolling and gluing my my flowers together, I added Stickles to the "petals." I added a paper flower to the center of the purchased denim flower.
I finished the card with the stamped "Happy 23" rectangle and added the rectangle to the corner of the center card panel.
If you have not already done so, please head over to the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog and check out the far better numbered birthday cards created by my design team sisters. They put so much work into their cards and it truly shows. Also remember, we so enjoy it when you join us in the weekly challenges!
