Happy Saturday! There was snow on the grass when I woke up this morning, not sure about you but I’m ready for spring and warmer temperatures. Today I will planning my Easter desserts for next weekend, making sure I purchase what I can in advance. Made some macaroni salad last night and plan on making ham today and wings tomorrow for dinner to go with it, yummy! Hopefully will have some time to do a little crafting as well.
Last night I made my card is for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch challenge, you can see the sketch below.
Chalk ink was the theme for the card, I used two of the new Stampin Up ColorBox chalk ink’s on today’s card. These ink pads and refills are in the 2015 Occasions catalog. It’s recommended that you purchase both the ink pad and the refill as you want a nice juicy ink pad at all times. The Aquamarine ink was used with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp to create the spotted background and Yellow Citrus was used to stamp Happy Birthday from Big Day (2015 Sale-A-Bration) directly on Chalkboard paper to create the birthday banner. On the large picture of the card its a little hard to see, so I included a close up as well – looks good in person. To complete the card which is on a Very Vanilla card base (top folding card), are two pieces of Flashback Designer Series Paper matted on Basic Black and a Real Red oval embossed with the Chevron Embossing folder. The In-Color thick Bakers Twine (a new Sale-A-Bration item this month) is wrapped around one section and bow added. To finish the card, I added three brushed gold brads I had in my old stuff stash.
