We’re celebrating another birthday on the Lovebug Creations Creative Team!
Happy Birthday, Connie!
Please join me in wishing her a wonderful day full of creativity and awesome surprises! Leave her a comment to make her feel extra special!
I created a card for the birthday girl inspired by vintage sewing notions. This greeting features one of the newer colors from Lovebug Creations, “Crushed” and I just adore this beautiful, warm Rumple Ribbon. It’s perfect for Spring, Summer and Fall.
I created the “Happy Day” sentiment using the Chip Art tools from Melody Ross. I was going for a leather bracelet look here, but it was a little more challenging than I was expecting. I guess I’m an optimist!
The ribbon matched perfectly with this pad of “DIY SHOP” scrapbook paper that I have from Crate Paper.
I added in a bit of White Mama’s Mesh to give it some additional texture. The white Rumple Ribbon is also from Lovebug Creations.
I love to use pattern in my designs but sometimes too much pattern is too much for the eye to handle. To solve this dilemma I like to separate patterns with a solid to give the eye a break and allow it to process the next print. Here I’ve separated the measuring tape paper from the floral background with a coral-colored paper. Although both papers came from the same coordinated paper stack, it might look messy and disorganized to leave them sitting next to each other.
The Washi Tape was a present from my friend, Cynthia Flores, for a Valentine Swap that we were in and it worked perfectly here to match the base paper.
Connie, I’m sending you a wish for a wonderful month of celebrating and hope you have a creative and beautiful day!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
