Quickie Birthday Card

Quickie card based on a sketch from I don't remember where.  I've seen several cards in blogland based on it, so in no way do I take credit for its simple but elegant design.  It was just perfect to try out my new Nestablings (LOVE them!).  They don't photograph very well on this busy paper but look great in person.    The Nestabling were surprisingly easy to use.  I got a set of the pearls and black jewels...so pretty!  

And  if the non cardmaker recipient asks me if I placed each one of those tiny pearls by hand, I think I'll just smile mysteriously and say "aren't you worth it?" 

BG Lemonade 6x6 DP, Spellbinder Nestie Large Scalloped Circle, Label Dies,  Nestabling, MS butterfly punch, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Snow Queen), Kaisercraft Pearls on butterfly, pink gems from stash.

Hope you're all having a restful, crafty weekend!


  1. LOVE the paper and its perfect design. The butterfly is the perfect touch!

  2. Thi is so beautiful, my friend. I've been ascared to try the nestablings (they look complicated), but you say they are easy, so on your recommendation, I may have to give it a whirl :)

  3. You made me laugh out loud with the pearl comment, way too funny! It is a gorgeous card and I love the layout. The papers are beautiful! Hope youare well! Best, Curt
