Paper Sweeties August Inspiration #22~Let's Celebrate!! =)

Pin It

2ndBirthday Tomorrows the day ...

I have some pretty EXCITING News to share today!! =) I've been asked to join the Paper Sweeties Team and I've said YES!! =) I can't wait to Share and Inspire you using the SWEET Paper Sweeties Products!! It's Time to CELEBRATE with Paper Sweeties!! It's Paper Sweeties 2nd Birthday and we're celebrating with a BIG Blog Hop and a Fun Birthday Challenge so make sure you link up because there are some GRAND Prizes to be won. You won't want to miss out!!
Today I'm playing along as the Guest Designer and the Newest DT Member!! You should be coming here from the AMAMZING Tammy Hobbs Blog!! If not please refer to the List below and don't miss out on a thing!! =)
I've decided to use the Tea For Two Stamp Set and the Coordinating Tea For Two Sweet Cuts Die along with a sentiment from the You're My Prince Charming Stamp Set!! I LOVE it!! I Paper pieced it and then created a really FUN Background!!
I started with a piece of Vellum and sprayed it with some Perfect Pearls Mist in Biscotti and some Prima Bloom Spray in Pearl Pink!! I then heat set it and used an Iron to flatten it out!! I then took some Distress Ink in Gathered Twigs and lightly went over the top!! I then picked out a Sweet Pink Polka Dot patterned Paper and Stitched the Vellum over top with my Sewing Machine!! =) This is the FIRST time I've sewn on a Card and I LOVE it!! YIPPEE!! =) I inked the edges and then added some Sequins in between the two layers!! I then stitched it closed and stitched on some Pretty Lace and Tulle Ribbon!! I Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment onto a thin strip of Vellum and then added some pearls to both sides of the sentiment!! I LOVE my card and I wish you could see how BEAUTIFUL this Vellum Background is in real life!! =)

I hope you LOVE my card and that you're ready to be AMAZED by the Design that PattieGoldman has created!!
