Today is my birthday. I don't really care that it's my birthday, just like any other day to me. EXCEPT, I declare to my family that I'm not doing any work and I go upstairs to my loft and PLAY the day away!
I found this great stamp set in ACMoore the other day. It was only $2.00 so I HAD to buy it.
It's by TPC Studios. When I bought it I pictured a bright, colorful, happy card. in my mind. I thought I would color it in with my Spectrum Noir Markers, but when I actually sat down to make the card today, I decided against the markers. Instead I decided to paper piece using pattern papers from American Craft. Yes, I cut out each individual sun ray, the balloon, and the banner. It took me FOREVER. But in the end, I like how it came out. I decided to keep the front of the card simple so my paper piecing could take center stage. I used one of the sentiment and the smaller balloon on the inside of the card to finish it off. Happy Birthday to me!
