"Wish Big" Birthday Card

Good morning! Here's a sweet 5x5 paper pieced birthday card I worked on last night. I went through my scrap pieces of paper and coordinated some fun designs to go along with the candles. Candle and scalloped circle pattern from My Scrap Chick.

My stamps from Craftin Desert Diva's came in handy for this card. I used the "Wish Big" stamp from Simply Said and "Happy Birthday" from Say it Big, for the inside of my card. You can purchase these stamps by clicking on the store link.

I finished it up with some twine and some bling from Recollections.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I always enjoy reading your feedback!

"I Love You" Greeting Card

Hi there! Today, I am sharing this paper pieced card I've created for my daily post at Craftin Desert Diva's. I used the sentiment, "I Love You!" from the Say it Big stamp set.

I didn't want the card to have a Valentine's Day appearance, but one that you could give to someone at any time. So, I stuck with bright colors. I added some of my own crochet flowers for dimension, as well as a glittery heart embellishment by Recollections. The paper used is by Simple Stories.  

The sweet paper pieced bear was created using patterns from Kadoodlebug Designs.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and if you'd like to purchase the Say it Big stamp set, just click on the store link above. Lots of great sentiments in this set, to use along with your paper crafting projects. Have a great day!
