Welcome Little One - Papercraft Star

First off, today is my oldest daughter's 5th Birthday! I can't believe she is five already, time has flown by! Baby girl, I am so blessed to be your Mom. You have brought my life more love and joy then you will ever know. Have a very Happy Birthday, I hope you have an incredible day! Love you!

Okay, now back to work. lol :) I hope each and every one of you had an amazing Thanksgiving!

This week Papercraft Star has another fabulous challenge for you, a sketch by the talented Kim Duran.


Such a wonderful sketch, and so inspiring! 
I was also inspired by this crib bedding.


Here is what I created.


For this card, I cut the Airplane with Banner using my Silhouette SD. The cloud is hand drawn and cut out by me. I used the White Grunge Squares from the Card Makers Series by The House Across The Bay. I did change the image by tinting it blue in Picasa 3 and then printing it out. Just like before when I printed the image in Sepia, this allows you to customize your digital images for more use.


I punched the top corners of the card using the scallop corner punch on my corner chomper. I also did some fun faux stitching and doodling to add more interest to the card. I love the way it came out and I hope you do also!

Thank you so much for stopping by,
Regan

Where does the time go? Your baby girl just turned 5! Doesn't it just feel like yesterday that you could snuggle her on your chest! So many preciuos memories to fill your heart with love forever!
I love your take on Kim's sketch! The cloud is genius! And I had know idea I could change a digi with anything other than something like a marker. I'm tickled to learn a new technique!
Kindest regards,
Jennifer
