hello, friend and celebrate



 
You know when you have a bunch of cards you need to make and you end up making random cards because that's what you were inspired to do?  Hello, friend is one of those.  I used Lucy's Cards sketch (Day #4).  Young Crafters Unite is having a CAS challenge and I love all the white on this card, swoon.


And this wine label uses the Make it Monday technique of the ink brayer over the impression plate and I think it works for the Lawnscaping Birthday challenge.  I also used the Lucy's Cards sketch (Day #3).

 

Materials: Card: PTI Mat Stack collection sentiment, PTI Mendhi Medallions, Spellbinders scallop circle die and circle die, Vintage Charm bling, PTI vintage cream card stock, black card stock, vellum, Versafine black ink.

Wine label: Lawn Fawn Bannerific, Cosmo Cricket rub on, patterened paper from my stash, Coredinations card stock, PTI vintage cream card stock, PTI edgers die, PTI Limitless Circles 1 3/4th inch die, EK Success corner rounder, PTI impression plate, pink paislee twine, Tim Holtz distress ink vintage photo, Tattered Angels black mist, Versafine black ink

Cute cards. I think it also works for one of the MIM challenges. The wine tag is cute. Love that sunshine IP. You have inspired me to use mine. I think I'll make my husband's bday card with it.
