Beautiful Day Birthday Card Set


I've spent the last couple of days working on some upcoming deadlines, well, that's until I got stuck and couldn't make a thing I liked!  I spent 3 hours on Saturday throwing away each and every piece I made.  When creative time makes me cranky, it's time to switch gears!  So after dinner I decided to just play with my stamps.  I haven't done a challenge in ages, so I set out for one that inspired me.  I found this Freshly Made Sketches #217 and I knew it'd be perfect to use with the Beautiful Day stamp set that I recently got.


While I had my MISTI out, I figured I may as well go ahead and make a few cards at once.  I tried out some different colors for layering stamps which was great, but I didn't get all of the layers on perfectly.  All is good, I had a blast doing it anyway!

In the end I wound up not using a sentiment strip across my card, but thank you FMS for getting my mojo flowing once again! You'll be happy to know that I took out the same products I was throwing away on Saturday and made a card I liked in 10 minutes flat.  Funny how that goes!
