New “Picture Perfect” Birthday card!

I am entering this card into “Brag Monday” for Graphics Fairy ( I ♥ u for all your amazing images - thanks!)  and also into the ISpy Sketches Challenge:

ISSC35 with Audrie Magno-Gordon

Our card is to based on this fun card by Audrie:

Here’s my take:

I have a terrible confession to make …

I did a huge clean/organize yesterday while organizing a storage closet while making a batch of chocolates while sweeping the drive after a big windstorm yesterday

Wind-Osoyoos-Cottages-October-2-2012

and somehow in all that I lost the strip on my designer paper which would tell you who made this paper.  Ah well.

Picture-Perfect2_Barb-Derksen 

I typed the sentiment onto a vintage vellum (a wonderful Value Village buy) and then enhanced it with a sharp felt pen.  I cut the Graphics Fairy image to a 2 x 2 inch size using my Silhouette Cameo  and then designed my own cut for the background (the image with the holes in it)  I’d like to share the file for this with YOU - I hope it comes in handy for you!  (I’m thinking you could hang a charm or perhaps a few from it)  You can grab the .studio file HERE. I have included the backing and then the 2 inch rounded edged square. 

Even though I’ve had a killer week I’m hoping to take part in one of Kelly’s (Finding Time to Create) online classes tomorrow!  You might want to check it out - she’s a wealth of information and inspiration!

I also wanted to sneak a pic in of the CUTEST vintage soap dish I bought at a garage sale while my Mother in Law was here.
