Birthday Boy...

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Hello, everyone!  I have another card for The Craft's Meow July Sketch to share today...

Remember the little owl was a little more frilly and feminine, and I wanted to challenge myself to something more clean and simple.  I've always wanted to do something with the little notebook page from the Owl Journaling set, so I pulled it out to see what I could do... 

I cut a circle out of my white cardstock with a Spellbinder and popped it up away from a piece of black on my  base with foam.  Then I stamped a border strip of the little pages in rainbow colors by masking, cut out that one long piece, and placed it across the front so that it would cross over open circle I had cut out.  I stamped and popped up one more page right in the center of the circle, and stamped my sentiment there (from Vintage Rides).   Added some buttons, and one more little VR sentiment on the little banner that came with that set, and it was done! 

The photo doesn't show the dimension real well...I think this one's cuter in real life, but...oh well (use your imagination for me!) Believe it, or not...I have one more I'm working on with this sketch.  Then I promise to put it away!  (It's just such an easy one to work with...and it just naturally worked for the look I wanted...lace trim...chipboard oval...pretty little bow...PRETTY friend of mine sentiment)  It's for my best bud...hope you'll pop in!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping in!
