Is it wrong to post a birthday card in honor of your own birthday? I hope not because...."happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me...." Okay, I think I got that out of my system. No promises though.
Today's card is using Memory Box images as well as a couple of their new papers from the Sugardrop line (Bubblegum and Candy Wrapper). I wanted to highlight Memory Box products because I have some exiting news pertaining to their company. Dave Brethauer contacted me this week and asked if I would blog for Memory Box and teach Memory Box classes at Angela's Happy Stamper. Ummm.....let me think about that for a second.....YES! I am very excited about this opportunity. I am in the process of developing a separate blog through the Memory Box site that will pertain strictly to Memory Box samples and ideas. Of course, I will be continuing with my own blog as well. I expect to be a pretty busy lady! It's all good though when it is something you love. My first Memory Box class in February and will be a Valentine's Day class.
To make today's card, I stamped the "swish flower" onto pink metallic paper, cut out the image, and added a white pearl to the center. I then layered it onto my decorative paper and added a saying that was also accentuated with the same pink metallic paper. Normally when I use this flower stamp, I color it with mediums such as pencils, markers, or paints. Sometimes I just stamp it onto decorative paper and use the paper itself as a means to color the image. In this case, however, I had so many patterns in the background that I felt a simple pink flower was best.
I will let you know when the new blog is up and running as well as the date of my class when it is scheduled. I have to say, this news was a pretty cool birthday present.
