It's Open Challenge for the party today at Party Time Tuesday! My card is for one of my favorite people! I made this card for my sweet friend, Jennifer. Her birthday was Aug 1st, and her favorite color is electric blue. I'm not good blues, but TAC has this great paper line called Lilly Anna, which has bright blue, pink, green and white in it. So, I grabbed it to make her card. I had shown her my first easel card a few months back, so I knew I wanted to make her one of those. I followed Sweet Spot Sketch #67 for the front of her card. I used one of my Greeting Farm stamps, Stella, cuz my friend has sassy short hair like her. I paper pieced her outfit from the tags that comes with the paper pack. Added some stickles, and smooch to her lips.

OH! I have to share this. No idea if I'm the last person to figure this out or what, but I came to it by accident. I had used my Martha Trellis punch to punch the white sheet for the inside of the card. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do, but wanted to layer it with some pattern paper. So, I looked at the scallop part, and wondered if one of my just scallop punches would fit. Go figure, the SU scallop punch is the exact shape as it. So, it layered under it perfectly. I'm sure someone knew that, but I didn't! Glad I tried it!
Supplies: nesties, copics, Martha punch, SU punches, SU cardstock and ink, Greeting Farm Stella, Verve birthday stamps, TAC Lilly Anna SWIC, and ribbon, primas, scrappers floss.
