My poor neglected blog, woe is it. We've had house guests this week so there hasn't been a lot of time for crafting or posting. During the week I snuck a little time in over a couple days and made this card. It's for my strawberry friend's birthday.
I didn't have a plan. I started out with the image and the ribbon and went from there. I couldn't find a sketch I liked so I played around till I couldn't stand it anymore and decided it wasn't going to get any better. Now that it's been sitting on my desk for a couple days it's starting to grow on me.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Teddy Bo digi
ink - hp printer and Ranger "Scattered Straw" for distressing the edges
paper - Wausau "Sand" cs; October Afternoon "Fly a Kite" and "Thrift Shop" dp; Georgia Pacific white cs for the image
miscellaneous - copics; Crystazzi bling; burlap twine; strawberry button; gingham ribbon; eyelet lace; Nesties oval, scalloped oval and doily dies; sewing machine
