Challenge #93 - Birthday Card

Good morning from DT, Carolyn with a Birthday card I created for Pattie's Creations Challenges and here is my little card ...using Pattie's image  "Hootie"


I viewed a video on GinaK Designs of how to sponge color a background and decided to try this even though I am not that good (and they used a acrylic stamp for their image whereas I print and cut "Hootie" with my Silhouette Studio DE software (upgraded version).  

Supplies used:
  • Distressed ink used for sponging in colors on label
  • Label from Annabelles Garden Basket CU/PU
  • 8.5 x 4.25 base
  • Matting cut to size 
  • 4 gemstones in each corners
  • Sentiment from using foam tape to adhere to card front.
Thank you for stopping to visit with me and please head over to Pattie's Creation Challenge for more inspiration.  Happy crafting to all....
