Live and Love Crafts - Anything Goes

Well this week LLC has left it wide open for us to create ANYTHING so I made a birthday card.  As much as I've been loving making Christmas cards, it was nice to be working with something different, well not different but different for this time of year.

I started with Maja Design's "Vintage Autumn Basics" and layered with a couple of doily's.  Seems like a perfect match for some shabby chicness don't ya think?

I added this Maya Road vintage wood birdcage and popped up a cute little lace bow at the top.  For the frame I backed it with some of the Autumn Basics paper and added an "hb" for the happy birthday sentiment.  OF COURSE I couldn't resist not dusting it with my new favorite new item GESSO!  LOVE THAT STUFF! 

I decided to color up "Vintage Violet" from Saturated Canary available at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps,which was somewhat of a feat for me this week.  I've recently had my eyes done and the edge of the image had either a very wide line or sometimes 2 lines.  LOL!!  Ok so I don't think I'm ready for close up stuff yet but everything else is all good.  Now we're just into the fine tuning part of things.  hee hee

In my bouquet on the left I used a newer die from Spellbinders simply called "Corner Fourish" and added some gorgeous Wild Orchid flowers also available now at LLC. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

This is a gorgeous so girly card!! I love how soft your image is and all the pretty frilly things on the card. I have gesso for my canvases, but I do like how you use it so I think I will bring mine out. Fabulous card!! And yes, it is very hard to do CAS, mind boggling to go from this to CAS for me! lol thanks for stopping by!
Merry Christmas,
