Wish

Hello.  Hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day.  Made a card this weekend to test out my Perfect Layers since they were generous enough to include me in their Brand Ambassador group.  I was actually thinking about getting these rulers years ago when I saw them on QVC (remember those marathon scrapbooking sales?)  But then scrapbooking fell by the wayside after about 4 months through my son's baby book.
Anyhow, it's only two little layers on the main image, a 1/8th inch light blue border and a 1/16th inch dark blue border.  Baby steps for me.  I even forgot to take pictures of the whole process.  But it actually does make it quite easy to mat multiple layers.  I tend to be a little cockeyed when it comes to sticking things down straight so this helps to actually cut around the image.

I decided to go with the monochromatic theme over at the Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Challenge.  Haven't participated in one of their challenges in a while, I'm slowly trying to make my way through all my stamps and rotating back now through TGF.  Now I have to ink up the matching Amelia, maybe to make a girl version of a graduation card.  Used a variety of star punches, Quickutz die, and a cutting file from Kerri Bradford when she offered it as a freebie a few months ago.  Added blue "Waterfall" stickles, but for some reason it looks gold on the enchanted evening PTI cardstock.  Light blue cardstock is Bazzill and patterned paper is from Prima, actually from the quite girly Sweet Fairy pack.

Based the card on this sketch from the Sweet Stop.
Bye!
