Sisterly Love

I actually set out to participate in the C.C. Designs guest designer challenge but then realized that my younger sister is having a birthday on the 6th of Sept. and we are going to be able to see her and her family this coming weekend for my brother's wedding. So, why not make her a card and be able to give it to her in person?

Her favorite color is green so I knew I was going with that color and I was going to build off of that. I also wanted to use my nestabilities to make the cards like I have seen so many times before. I used PTI spring moss as the base and used my largest petite scallop nestability to make the card.

I pierced each scallop on the card base and used new canvas ink on the edges.

I love the paper I picked up from Target a long time ago on clearance so I used a little bit of that for the card as well. It was cut out with nestabilities and then ripped in the center. I used PTI Father Knows Best set for the tree. I tried the rocking idea but you can't really tell since that part was actually covered with the PP.

I used some scrap kraft paper that was already speckled with walnut ink and cut it out with nestabilities for the sentiment. I punched the sentiment tag on top and bottom with the slit punch to thread the ribbon through. The ribbon is twill PTI spring moss.

Can you tell I love the pearls. It just needed something else. I had fun making it and hope my sister likes it.

Thanks for stopping by.
