We celebrated my girlfriend Roz’s 39th Birthday and I made this card for her. It’s so nice to have young friends! Roz,Vicki Fraser and I went to The Elephant Rock Cafe at Currumbin which is right on the beach front and has an amazing view to celebrate with a lovely lunch. I’m entering this card in challenge all about Friends http://stampwithfun.blogspot.com/2011/07/challenge-121-freundefriends.html and Anything Goes at http://simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.com/2011/07/simon-says-stamp-and-show-anything-goes.html
I wanted to try something new with my Stampin Up 2 Step Bird Punch and I used the cardboard that I had punched out the leaves as a stencil template to create my background paper for my cute little birdie. You can see I also used the bird’s wing as a leaf with my flowers. I used my own homemade mist to add some pink sparkle. I love paper piercing, it is so relaxing so added that as well and to lift my pink background used a yellowy gold background to lift it and put it all on a gold card and voila!
My friend Roz recently took a family trip to Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo so I cut out a sachet full of mini Australia’s using my Big Shot and my QuicKutz Australia Die in dark green cardstock and popped them inside this cute little heart sachet so she can scrapbook all her photos as I knew she was planning her Australia Zoo pages. I used the template from Papermaia to make this gift sachet then embossed it. Roz loved that I remembered her zoo ideas and was really excited to see all her little Australia's inside the sachet!
