SOS #152 Happy 3rd Birthday!!


Shopping our Stash is celebrating their 3rd birthday with a birthday card challenge #152. This card was made with some retired SU! dsp, and I used random snippets to create herringbone vertical panel. The flourish is by Cheery Lynn, and the sentiment is Penny Black done on a SB labels 18 die. The flowers were done with a SU! punch and I added some matching pearls to the flower centers. The main panel is Soft Stone from PTI and I outlined the edge with a marker before die cutting.

I'm also taking this card over to the Snippets Playground #125.

That's it for me today, but thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful week ahead!

Wow Carol, this is stunning. LOVE the herring bone pattern, great way to use up snippets. Then the leaves, flowers and sentiment all add up to make this such a lovely card.

Hugs, Di xx

So pretty Carol. You make the best cards from little pieces of paper. If I tried this, it would be a total mess! Yours came out stunning. Love all the flowers and vines - everything is so lovely! Great card. Hugz!
