Birthday Emma

Good Sunday morning to you all! I was able to get a couple things created in the last few days but there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day. LOL! My motivation to create is slowly coming back some of it by necessity since I have to get some things done for a volunteer recognition event for Girl Scouts coming up very soon. But my card today was sparked by two things. First I won this sweet Emma Digital stamp from the Sweet n' Sassy blog hop on Sandy's blog. And of course I had to try it out. And I printed off the directions of how to make this frame a while ago from Split Coast Stampers and I thought the two together might be a winning combination.

So I colored Birthday Emma with colored pencils and sponged the background and then mounted her into the frame. and mounted the frame on Black card stock. The crad base is a light pink with a darker pink card stock toward the bottom of the card. The ribbon I think I got at Michael's on clearance and then I added the sentiment from a Gina K set. The name is escaping me at the moment. I mounted the sentiment on a scalloped punch card stock.

On the inside I used a new punch I got when our LSS went out of business. It's the EK Success notebook punch. I used the same paper as the frame. Pretty simple but gives the inside a little perk.

I'm using this card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge: You bought it You use it challenge. I had never used the punch before so that's the biggest thing. And the paper is several years old from Stampin' Up!

Hope your weekend has been wonderful. I'll be back with some other goodies I've created. So glad this will be a somewhat slower week for me. Hope your's is also.

Inky hugs,

Donna
