I used a miscellaneous Christmas stamp set. First I took Distress Inks direct to paper and then spritzed with water for the background. Then stamped in black ink. The little gold stars were made with Nuvo Glue Pen and foil.
Two strips of black card stock along top and bottom.
One of my granddaughters, Kailey will be turning 14 tomorrow. Where does the time go?
So I made this card for her and am going to enter it into STB which I haven't done in a long time.
Since Meeting the lovely owner of STB (Nancy) and my Bff is on the design team, I thought it's about time to enter it again.
This is part of the stamps from Stamps of Approval that Colleen so generously got me for helping her out posting for her on Merry Monday when she was in the gym watching her granddaughters play volleyball. Thanks again friend.
Think it turned out pretty cute. A few years ago, I started taking the girls out to dinner and then shopping after for their gift. That way I get to spend some one on one time with them and they get what they want. I used to be pretty good at picking out things for them when they were little.

I haven't been in my craft room to create all week and I was really ready to be here.
When I saw the topic on Time Out, I knew exactly what I wanted to use.
'May All your weeds be wild flowers'
I just saw that I can also enter this into CASology
This Lisa Johnson stencil called Peaceful Wildflowers. Of course the stencil isn't like pictured here so I had to cover up some images as I sponged the ones I wanted then turn the stencil upside down to get others. And of course I tried other methods, like my Brushos and Zig pens to watercolor and did not have much luck with them. Loll made a beautiful background with a stencil and her Brushos, but mine did not turn out like hers.
Anyway this is it and I used Distress Inks to sponge on then because they were so plain tried to add some details by hand, which is not good since I can't even draw stick people. Also put some white Perfect Pearls on the flowers which is hard to see in the photo.
Used some PTI vellum and embossed with Liquid Platinum and some embroidery thread.
