Good morning sweet readers,
Happy Saturday to you! Can you believe that January is almost gone? Where is time going! It seems the older I get, the faster time flies! Do you think it's because when we were younger, we had so much to learn that time seemed to be slower, and, now, as we age, there are fewer "unknowns" and time seems to fly? Remember being in school and that last hour of the day just seemed to drag by? LOL
I have a new card to share with you today. It's a birthday card for my sweet friend, Sharon, who has a birthday this week. Her favorite color is purple, so I thought a truly purple card would be perfect! Sharon lives a bit more north than I do and is always cold. With that in mind, I chose to combine a winter feel with birthday and purple! How's that for getting a ton of themes into a card! LOL
This is one of my newest Tilda stamps. I think it is probably one of my very favorites. She's been colored with distress inks. There are touches of glitter on the ground, snowflakes, and ends of her scarf. I even used two different colors of purple glitter on the scarf ends! There is glittery cardstock behind the image mat. The snowflakes are all sparkly, too. I "dunked" the large purple rose into glass glitter to add a frosty feel as well. Inside, I kept the snowy theme and added some pearls, rhinestones, ribbon, and a Magnolia gardenia. The beautiful flowers are from HOOKED ON CRAFT
