Gee, I just could not sleep early this morning! I was tossing and turning, I tried for over an hour and thought bugger this, I am getting up! After wasting about 2 hours on facebook, SCS, blog surfing etc I thought it was time to make a card, this was around 5.30. What a lovely hour to make a card! it really got my creative juices going and came up with this little beauty:In about 6 weeks time we are off to Thailand for my best friends wedding, and we will miss my sister in laws 30th birthday, so I wanted her card to be a little bit special, seeing that we wont be here! I was inspired by some recent step cards posted on Debbie M's blog, she does some beautiful work over there, if you haven't already done so, check it out! Anyway, she has posted a few step cards of late and they are all really pretty, so I thought it was time to give another one a go. The last one was a bit of a disaster. Anyway, I used cameo coral as my main color and accompanied it with some DSP from the summer mini(gorgeous paper & only 20 days left to order some if you want it), textured card stock, stamped the butterflies from the Dream Big & From the Garden sets, and the lettering from the big deal alphabet. The numbers were from my stash and I finished it off with some dazzling diamonds & rhinestones for a touch of sparkle! I hope she likes it!
