Good Morning! I have finally finished preparing all of the goodies that I need to take for our Easter Dinner. Now it is time to get down to business and load my Rose's Challenge for this month. Sweet Sue Rose has challenge us to do a fancy fold card. I will be the first to admit that I get a wee bit boring with my A2 cards. I found this great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers, for a Surprise Pop-Up Card and thought it looked interesting.
I used some olive and turquoise cards stock and some matching designer paper from Basic Grey. My stamps are from Theresa Momber's stamp set call Little Critters, that was created for Gina K. Designs. I added Prima's, fibers, and fancy centers. Coloring was done with Copic Markers and I added glaze with Crystal Effects.
I don't think I have to explain the workings of this thing. Mine is not as fancy as some of the beauties I have seen from our bouquet, but I was happy with the results. It took me out of my comfort zone. LOL! Thanks, Sue!
Be sure to take a peek at what the other Rose's have come up with! They do such fabulous work! Some have loaded already because of the holiday, just like I am.
I also wanted to share this really awesome birthday cake that my DS's buddies had made for him. My kid is a real card, what can I say. He loves to cut up and do silly faces for photos. The one buddy drew him from a photo, took it to the bakery, and had them recreate it. Too funny. It says "Rappy Birthday" since he has his own recording studio. Clever guys, huh?
Easter Blessings to you and your family. Don't eat too many jelly beans!
P.S. I found the dress for my DD's wedding. Woo Hoo! More about that later.
