Fab Friday No. 35 Challenge Card

I squeaked in a bit of crafting time between household chores yesterday - chose this:

Fab Friday No. 35 Challenge

And my take:

Fab-Friday-35-1_Barb-Derksen

SUPPLIES:

Cardstock

Designer Paper (scrap - I really need to pencil the info on the back of my scraps so I can give credit where it’s due!)

Stamp - Bo Bunny

Doily - I think this might be a Bird’s free Cutting file but the file name does not say.

Fab-Friday-35-2_Barb-Derksen

I asked my Cameo to trim the doily to the size I needed to fit on this layer, and I actually cut it from a Glidden Paint chip.  I like these paint chips, they have so many subtle variations of color that its easy to match up with almost any designer paper.  Adding the the tiny gem for the dot of the eye added the last touch.

I found that of all the cards I’ve stockpiled, I had a shortage of sympathy ones.  I think I will have to build them up.  Do YOU have a stockpile of cards available, or do YOU make yours to meet the needs?

Thank you for visiting today.

  5. Great job on the sketch, Barb! Love your card, and a sympathy card is nice to have in your stash.
    Since you asked - I have a stash of WAY too many cards in my craft room. But when I need one, I usually make a new one.
    I love the soft colors and layered ribbon you used. Super idea to use the paint chips, it has a nice texture too!
