Cute Card Thursday - Birthstone

Our Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week is to use your birthstone as inspiration for your card. I am a May baby, so my birthstone is Emerald. Here is my card...


Stamps: Tilda With Cute Skirt, Wonderful Favorites, Vintage Labels (SU!)
Paper: K&Co
Accessories: Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Buttons, Charm, Feathers, Berries, Cricut Lacey Labels


So, this card is for father's day. What do you think, too girlie? My daughter thinks so. Oh, well, it is on its way.


I just got some Perfect Pearls and needed to try some techniques, so I colored some white paper with distress inks and Perfect Pearls. I used this paper for my sentiment.


 I love the look of berries on a card. I have started to play with making my own. The blue berries are a result of that effort. I layered buttons and added feathers for a non-flowery embellishment. 

I used the sketch from Just Magnolia and will be entering the card in that challenge.


A LITTLE EXTRA...
I wanted to share this adorable give my daughter made for me. She loves to draw anime cats. She drew this cat and created a card.


Here is a closeup of the cat she drew...


She used polymer clay to make a cat to match.The cat is holding a cake with a sweet message carved into the top. 


Thanks for stopping by today!
