It's the weekend?

     I can't believe it's the Saturday already. I don't know how these weeks fly by so fast. Here we are at the last week of January and mentally, I'm just ready for last Christmas (but that would be too long a story). Let me show you today's card.

     This card is for a friend of mine, who doesn't know I blog. It's A2 size (5 1/2 x 4 1/4), and I embossed the front with the Hero Arts cling stamp, Flower Wallpaper and kaleidoscope powder. I cut grey Core'dinations from the Super Assortment Pack sold by Hobby Lobby, at just under 2 inches. I added a pink strip of paper under it and another grey piece of the Core'diantions,  that I had punched with a Fiskers border punch and put underneath the other two. I used my plain oval and oval scallop nestibilities and a Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment. I then took a glitter pen and added some clear glitter to the scallops. The flowers are from Archiver's and the top one is embossed with more kaleidoscope embossing powder.
     Inside I just matted with the grey paper and made the writing digitally. I used Archiver flowers with a Paper Studio Spare Parts brad and a Cupcake sticker from K & Company to embellish it.
     What would I change? Well, seeing the front and inside together, I know I have a font from ScrapNfonts that would match the stamp on the front better called SNF Classy Charm. I probably would choose that for the inside. I also would straighten the cupcake a bit, though at the time I deliberately made it askew. I have used this style before, changing the colors for other occasions such as wedding and even sympathy cards. It's very versatile. I have in the past switched out the flowers for butterflies.
     My friend's birthday, who reads this blog, is Tuesday, so I can post that card here late Mon. I'm still trying to come up with the vases I'm suppose to use for the pasta dinner, so that I know what size to make the centerpieces. My husband has come up with some ides for them, so I'm looking forward to getting started on them.  Thanks for stopping by and giving me some of your time! Your comments are greatly appreciated as well.
