I sat down to think about Patti's card and I had several papers laying on my desk. The Vintage Garden wasn't one of them. The Vintage Garden card stock was laying by my computer. I was not feeling any of the card stocks I'd chosen move me. I got up to take a break. I turned on my laptop and as it was coming on line, I looked down and the oval on the page struck me. I could see Patti's name written in the oval. I cleared off all the other papers and made the first cut.... For the sentiment I used Print Shop 23. The border is the Martha Stewart double loop. I cut it on pink card stock, but when I put the sentiment piece on top it was too dull. Chalking helped, as did the Sakura glitter pen.....adding the Crystallized Swarovski Elements added more glitz, but still not enough. I had an idea to spray the border with Sprayment and cover it with Art Institute Pink Azalea Transparent glitter. I was happy. I added a gold dragon fly and the card was finished.
Patti....Happy Birthday, I wish you many, many more and now you know the rest of the story!
