Birthday season

Summer is a birthday season in our family, so I’m busy creating birthday cards

and here is a card for my grandma


She lives in our home country – Russia (as all our relatives do). That’s why the sentiment is in Russian.

I made this card following a sketch at The Paper Players – PP296 – A Sketch Challenge from Laurie. Here is Laurie’s sketch:


My grandma loves lilac and used to grow it in her garden, so I’ve chosen lilac & white cardstock from AC Color Memories pad and pierced the edges of the top layer with MCGill stylus.

I used a doily which resembles crochet for the backdrop and floral embellishment from my K&Company Brenda Walton set as a centerpiece.

The sentiment is just printed on Inkssentials Gloss paper and cut out with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Framed Tags die-cut.

For the finishing touch I made a bow from Bead Avenue cotton braiding cord and added it to the corner. Hope my grandma will love this card.

I’m also entering two more challenges:

  • Seize The Birthday challenge with a “Toppings” option “Dimention”
  • Time Out Challenges #57 ‘Inspired by Words’ challenge – ‘May All your weeds be wild flowers’. I’ve obviously chosen “flowers” as inspiration.

      Yes, I know, It’s because of this lilac/purple color! 🙂
      But I can’t enter in more than three challenges, according to the rules of The Paper Players challenge…
      Thank you for your warm welcome! Maybe I will enter with another card 😉
