Hippie Birthday ~Basic Grey Challenge #32~


Hello everyone, I completed this card for the Basic Grey Challenge #32 one of Christine's awesome sketches. Fabulous cards!!! Check it out! Okay most who know me, know I have not made cards but a few since like 2003.....yeah I know along time.....but my time is so limited (who's isn't) so when I do get to craft....I make scrapbook pages.....but I think I have fell back in love with card making. Here is my first watercolor card....I used a stamp I have had since 2001 and the saying is from SU 2001 Hippie Birthday....love that saying!!! Oh course I used the Basic Grey Color Me Silly line. The flowers are cut from the Cricut from Wild Card at 2, 1 3/4, and 1 1/2. The peace signs are from Disney The Cars Cart....funny story is...I knew I had seen a peace sign on one of the carts....so I kept looking and my 11yo ds Cody was helping....and he finally said maybe it's the Cars...yeah I screamed. I have to hide that cart. from my little boys....they just want to look at it all the time. So the peace signs were made at 3/4. Some inking and sewing!!!!!!!! TFL!

Hi Dawn, your card is fantastic! I love the bug and how you coloured it and the BG paper you chose is absolutely perfect with it. Great idea to use the peace signs for the strip across the middle, love how you've interpreted the sketch. Have a great weekend and glad you could join us at BG this week. Chris :)
