What time is it? Party Time!

I totally apologize for the High School Musical reference, I don't know what came over me.

I am so happy to share this with you!! This is a card I made this weekend before I got sick, and I love love love it!!

What's so special about it? Well, it's a sample for a sketch challenge! Do you love Verve Stamps? Wanna be our Honored Guest? Well, here's your chance!! You can read all about it on the Verve Blog HERE. <---CLICK

This was a really simple card to make. I started with a piece of Cool Caribbean cardstock and stamped stars of different sizes randomly all over it in Chocolate Chip Craft ink. That was layered onto my Chocolate Chip card base. Then I stamped the Happy Birthday (from Fancy Florals) onto White Cardstock, first in Cool Caribbean ink, then with Chocolate Chip Craft for a raised look. I matted that piece onto Chocolate Chip cardstock, then onto a larger piece of Caribbean, with piercing along the top & bottom. I made sure the Caribbean square and the white diamond were the same size (2.5" square I think), so neither one would overpower the other. I layered a Chocolate Chip panel across the Caribbean patterned piece, did some faux stitching freehand with my White Glaze Pen, and then layered on the white and Caribbean pieces. For the top left corner, I punched out 2 strips with my Word Window punch, faux stitched around them, and adhered them to my card. The final touch was 6 tiny Swarovski crystals for some bling.

Thanks for all your well wishes and get well vibes! I still have a nasty cough and very sore throat, but the fever is gone, so that's great!! I feel so much better without that. Hopefully I'm on my way back to the land of the living! *wink*
