A Card Made from My Winnings

On a previous post I was able to show you a sample of the goodies I received from a giveaway. I decided to challenge myself and use as many of the goodies to make a birthday card for my niece who is turning 11 soon. I only added the two little floral embellishments from my own stash.

I think this type of freestyle creation might not be for me. I think I'm more comfortable with a pattern... or sharp lines... measurements... and a little more color. Maybe I'll make another card with as many of the same materials... using a little more logic... and then I'll compare the two.

Okay, I feel like I might be revealing a little too much about myself! LOL

Just adorable! My good friend here in Sunny CA often creates things like this from invitations she receives and turns them into beautiful gifts for the events she's been invited to attend. Gorgeous Sister Sheri!

The card is beautiful! What a lucky young lady your niece is to have such a thoughtful aunt! I understand your dilemma, though. I'm a terribly symmetric person living in a totally asymmetric world.

P.S. Yes, all three of the quilts I purchased yesterday are hand made!

Gracie !!!!!LOVES!!!!! the hat. She was very surprised and it looks adorable on her. She also loved the card and has it displayed on her vanity.

It is good that you use the goodies from your stash. I just keep buying and hoarding!

I love that you made this card for Gracie from stuff I sent to you for the givaway. It turned out so cute. you sell yourself short..you are very, very creative- and what a neat challenge to present yourself with- using stuff I gathered quite randomly and sent to you.
My daughter Anna is about the same age as Gracie and she has a blog "A Big Fat Cat" where she lists Gracie's and Gracie's Mom's blog on her favorites. How fun!!
