Happy 1st Anniversary card



Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!


I hope your all enjoying the New Year so far. I was able to get all my Christmas stuff packed away and get my house back in order after the holidays and boy, does it feel good! I can't wait to find a little spare time and get in my craft room and get it cleaned and organized.  This is one of my resolutions for the 2012.....Get organized better and STAY organized :) Big talker now.....we'll see! LOL!

I made a card today to enter in a few challenges going on. I especially kept in mind my dear friend Diana over at DL.ART who is celebrating her 1 Year Blogaversary with a hop.  If you  hop through, visit each person and leave a comment, you have a chance to win an awesome cartridge-Sweet Tooth Boxes. (Be sure to grab the clues for the challenge) You have until Jan 6th to link up. So, come on and show your support and visit Diana for the details and play along in this fun challenge.

Here is my card:

I cut the brown base from the Lacy Labels cartridge at 4.75 x 10.71 using my gypsy. The base layer cut at 4.25 x 4.95 with pattern paper. The pink label is cut at 1 3/4,  stamped with a sentiment from
SU-a word for you set and then embossed with the Sizzix flower folder. I inked around the edges and also added some glitter around the edges which is hard to see but so pretty.
]
I cut the green leaves from Elegant Edges at 2" and embossed with the swiss dots folder. The flower is cut at 4" and after shaped,  added some glitter to the edges as well for a little sparkle. The sentiment-celebrate and the "1" is from Hero Arts. I added a little stitching for a little pop and a pretty pink satin bow.
Here is a close up of the flower :)


I am also entering this in the following challenges:

1.) DL.ART ~Blogaversary
2.) Getting Cricky-Simply Sunday ~"It's a Celebration"-project to celebrate something
3.) Creative Cutter Room-Design Time Thursday ~Sparkle Time-Anything goes, but must sparkle
4.) Really Reasonable Ribbon ~Challenge #39-Sparkle and Ribbon

Thanks for visiting,
Sherrie K
