It's that time of year when Father's Day and Birthday's sneak up on me...so having said that I had to get cranking and slowly cranking it is...I am finding it hard to sneak crafty time right now.
Most of you know I tend to create more shabby layer upon layer cards..., but truly, I am an eclectic crafter...I craft by mood, and today I was in a fun and cute kind of mood. I did jump start my mojo with the current Paper Smooches Designer Draft Challenge, however my creativity got going with the scene, so I took some creative liberty with the sketch if you will! :-) The bones are still there!:-)
Here is what I have to share!
The entirety of my card with created using items from my scrap pile. Sadly, I never make a dent in "said" scrap pile. I started with a yellow card base (not even sure of the color name/brand as it was in the stash), and I added my striped patterned paper. (DCWV). I added some fun glitter ribbon to the top. Next I created my scene on a piece of white cardstock.
I used Paper Smooches Surf and Turf...I had to use the Pelican because it reminds me of my home state of Florida. I miss home tons. Besides the obvious of missing my family, I am a coastal gal at heart! :-) I then added Mr. Crab holding the fun sentiment "You're Swell!
I die-cut the clouds and added a touch of white paint to them. Being a girl who loves buttons, I added a row at the bottom...all of which have been laced with twine.
I hope you enjoyed my fun little share. I am joining in at: Paper Smooches Sparks. I added my pelican and cloud to the left side verses the right, and well, I needed another cloud and my sweet crab in there. :-)
