Hello everyone! :)
In case you didn't know, today is my dear mother's birthday! :) So it's already a super special day, to begin with. It also happens to be the day that MFT is rolling out the very first teasers of its all new, completely EXCLUSIVE line of adorable little girl images, Pure Innocence.
You guys are just going to DIE when you see all these cuties! I was the oddball out this time around and didn't fall over the second I saw them, but as soon as I started creating with them... man. Let me just tell you that you are not going to want to miss the teasers! This line is so so FUN! :)
Today I thought I'd share with you a card that I put together with this adorable little balloon girl. So, happy birthday, mom! Enjoy your card, internet-style! :)
Now let me tell you, just about everything that could have gone wrong with this card did. I picked out a beautiful green layer to go over the purple one. But once I got through sewing the layers together and making room for the ginormous bow, the layer wouldn't fit. I had already broken my sewing machine trying to sew the layers, so I didn't want to cut down the green layer and re-sew the edges. So it just got left off. Since I messed up my sewing machine mid-layer, one of the corners was sewn a little wonky, so I had to pop down some buttons in the corner to cover it up! Then I somehow managed to swipe my whole hand through the Glossy Accents on the girl before she had dried. So I had to carefully clean up that mess too! Phew! I'm tired just thinking about it! :) Luckily, it all worked out in the end! :)
