In between service techs, I did find time to make my DD a birthday card. ;)
I just love this Chloe stamp. She looks so sweet, and reminds me of my DD. I colored her with Copics, and used a die cut negative to frame her. The frame is lifted off the image with layers of crimped cs, and the image is positioned behind it so that you can still see the little bee buzzing around. The diagonal stripes are Washi tape with Stickles. The sentiment is stamped on a Verve Floral Circle die cut, then popped up over a larger Floral Circle. The bling under the sentiment are Swarovski crystals. They sparkle so much more than other rhinestones.
I mentioned last week that I had made 14 fabric-covered boxes for my DD's upcoming birthday party. I've finally gotten all the spray adhesive off nearly everything in my craft room (tip: never use spray adhesive indoors, even with a color catcher box for overspray--it gets airborne, and covers EVERYTHING!), so I thought you might like to see how they turned out.
Well, that's all I've got for now. Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a fantastic day!
