HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GLORIA!

Well it's that time again...Friday sketch challenge over at The Lounge.  If you use an OCL stamp set and follow the sketch, you could win an OCL stamp set of your choice.  Visit The Lounge blog to see the current challenge and read the rules.  Hey, did you know OCL is still "Very Thankful for YOU"!?!  Yep, they are!  They are giving away stamp sets Monday through Friday until the end of the year.  Go here to read the rules and here to see the latest set and leave a comment.  Good luck!

I saw a tutorial a while ago for a really cool fabric flower and wanted to try it out.  I finally broke down and did it.  Yea...it was so cool!  It really is a shame though...the pictures don't do it justice at all!  The flower looks kind of black but it isn't...it's a deep, dark plum...very pretty!


I started by making my flower per this tutorial.  I switched it up a little though.  I didn't cut paper circles or draw pencil lines (blah, blah, blah)...I just cut a piece of fabric and ran it through my Big Shot with my Nesties.  Worked great!!!  I used Old Olive card stock and an EK Success punch for the branches.  The best part about the flower...I put a magnet on the back so my friend can hang it on her fridge or filing cabinet.  Kewl beans!


The sentiment (inside and out) is an OCL set called Big Birthday Wishes.  I absolutely LOVE this set!  It has the best script writing!  I used a Spellbinders die and Neenah card stock for the sentiment.  Before it was removed from the die, I sponged Rich Razzleberry around the outside edge working my way towards the center.  The sentiment was also stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  The paper is My Mind's Eye and a wired ribbon completes the card.


Thanks for stopping by!
