Happy Birthday to Perfect Sentiments!!!!


We are celebrating our Birthday/Anniversary today!  Thank you for joining us.  We have A LOT planned this week.  So are you ready to get going?

Not only are we celebrating our blog being around for 1 year with wonderful designers, but we're celebrating our generous sponsors! Without them, entering our challenges wouldn't be as fun. Knowing you are eligible for prize makes it sweeter to create doesn't it?

Our Blog Hop begins with a Birthday/Anniversary card.   You pick which style you want-just remember you need the sentiment on the front!

My image is from Stitchy Bear Designs.  I colored her with pencils.  The background paper is from Bella Bella.  I've framed her with a spellbinder.  I wanted a present so I wrapped a piece of cardboard with purple seam binding, added tiny butterflies & pearls to jazz it up.  The rick rack is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Hop along to the following blogs to see what our Perfect Sentiments Team has created to inspire you.

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly.
