Oh gosh, things have been busy this last week. I know I haven't posted a whole lot lately but getting ready for the baby shower pretty much took over my life this last month. Doing invitation, getting them sent out, making all sorts of table decorations, baby shower banner and I even made my very first diaper cake. I took pics and will be posting these this week. So you will get to see all the wonderful crafting that took over my life. lol Of course after hosting the shower on Saturday, the next day was Easter and my hubby and I were exhausted after the weekend so we took a much needed break on Monday. (just not as young as I used to be, thus gonna be a grandma) lol :D
Well today I am introducing a new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters, "Things with Wings".
I used a stamp by Graphic 45 named Botanical Tea, it's so pretty and I love the bird on the tree branch. For this card I used a technique I just love, the technique is Stamped Acrylic Block Background (see tutorial on SplitcoastStampers). In addition to the stamp I also used some of the Graphic 45 papers, too.
Here's my card:
