This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is Amber (aka sprtchick). Amber has a really amazing gallery full of pretty, classic-feeling cards and as always, I started by doing a quick run through and choosing 3 or 4 that jumped out at me. Then I examined each one before finalizing my decision - this is the one for this week:
-colours including the yellow base
-black sentiment on the right hand side
-the amount of yellow
-fewer layers on my sentiment
-no ribbon or brads
-MFT Delicious Birthday
-MFT Birthday Wishes and Balloons
-MFT butterfly die (retired)
-Kuretake Gansai Tambi*
-MFT Pierced Square die
-Wink of Stella
I gave this card to my friend Tasha for her birthday at our crafty day at Tracey's house today:
Stephanie, Kate, Brooklyn and Lindsey were there (Lindsey escaped before the photo session), but we missed Emily, who couldn't join us today.
I baked a chocolate cake to celebrate and we all had a wonderful time!
*the butterflies were cut from the first panel I made when I was making this card (I embossed in silver rather than white and didn't feel there was enough contrast). I knew if I held onto it, it would get used somehow!
