Tuesday Morning Sketches #293

Good Morning!  Thank you for stopping by.  I am really excited about this week's sponsor at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Sweet Pea Stamps is sponsoring and this is a new company to me.  WOW!  Some amazing artwork.  I have to admit, some of the images available are very intimidating to me - I'm thinking there is no way that I can make them pretty.  You must go check them out if you haven't already.

My card features Conie Fong's Tori the Dragon - Up.  This little dragon captured my heart, I mean look at those eyes!  I paired it up with another one of those old card kits.  I love this paper, I used to have some in a mat stack by DCWV.  So cute!  Perfect for a little boy's card.

I've got birthdays on my mind - Brendan turned 20 two weeks ago, Levi will be 16 on Friday and Hollyanne will be 17 about 2 weeks after that.  Although mine aren't little anymore, cards for little ones are definitely a favorite to make.  I pulled out old brads, dies I haven't used.  Yes!  I actually used my Cuttlebug and dies and not my Cameo.  Dies are from MFT (circles and banner) and Mama Elephant (bow).

Then to add some sparkle to the balloons, I pulled out the pretty Wink of Stella clear pen.  I thought about putting some glossy accents over that, but I decided to leave it since it matched the paper just like it was.

Thank you for stopping by and looking.  Please leave me a comment so I know you visited.  Have a great day and we'll see you over at TMS.
