Guest Designing at Special Day Cards

Hello, everyone,
I am super excited to announce my Guest Designing spot at Special Day Cards Challenge Blog.
If you are not familiar with this amazing challenge blog, I hope you'll take this opportunity to check it out and join the fun.
I am  their guest at challenge with theme Birthday Cards with Strips.
Here is my contribution to their DT inspiration:

I printed the sentiment on a piece of heavy white cardstock; then stamped the swirl stamps with embossing ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I used Faded Jeans DI to give the cardstock random patches of lighter and darker blue color.

Then I layered some while lace strips on the base of the card, tore up the cardstock with sentiment into strips and layered them with additional lace and flowers randomly sprinkled here and there.

Of course, I could not resist to add a shabby bow. I made this card for my dear blog friend Branka. By the time this post is published, this card will already be delivered to her...Well, once again, Happy Birthday Branka!!!

So, I hope you enjoyed this post and would love to see you join the amazing Special Day Cards challenge
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...
