Greetings Stampers and Friends! I hope you've all had a wonderful 4th of July! We had a wonderful time going to the parade and spending time with friends and family. Our home town always has a phenomenal parade and once again they did a bang up job! The parade always starts off with a military fly by and that always moves me.
Before I get to the card I made I have something to ask all of you. I have to get working on a big project here today that I've really been looking forward to doing. My cousin (I only have 2) is getting married next month and he and his fiancée have asked me to make their guest book. How exciting is that? So I'm wondering if any of you fellow bloggers have and suggestions, links or tutorials I could take a gander at. I have an idea in my head, but I would really like to see what all of you have done in the past. I'd like to bind it myself – maybe a little Japanese binding or something. I don't want to spiral bind it, I'd like to be able to use some pretty ribbon. So, if you could help me out with that I would dearly appreciate it.
Anyway, The card today is one I made quite a while ago. I used the pretty princess set from Stampin' Up!. This little purse opens up and is a birthday invitation. The front of the purse is actually a shaker card and filled with microbeads. I used some feather boa pieces from the clearance rack at Michaels. You gotta love clearance racks!
I used the Stampin' Up! markers to color in the princess and used some of the long ago retired yellow glitter from Stampin' Up!. I can't believe I still have some, but I do.
Now I am off to take my beautiful Sophie to the orthodontist. Fun stuff! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
