Happy Birthday Peru and a card!!

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a great, wow, looks like the time in the Summer flies a lot faster.
Today it's Peru Independence Day!!! 191 years! Feeling a little bit homesick, I miss my family a lot as well as the great food and all the goodies we have over there. Wishing I could be there, but I know my family is celebrating with me in mind ;)

On the other side, Splitcoastampers is having a full week of challenges and prizes!! If you want to find out more about the Dare to get Dirty Challenges , check it out HERE

I created this card for one of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges using the sketch from "Less is More" challenge Blog. This is my interpretation of "Clean and Simple"

  • Make card base from White Cardstock  (3.5" x 5.5")
  • Emboss a strip of White Cardstock. Die-cut a scallop boder from White Cardstock. Adhere both to card base.
  • Add a piece of  White Lace Tape Ribbon.
  • Die-cut butterflies, stamp images using Glue Pad, then add Microfine Glitter. Adhere butterflies to card, add pearls.
  • Add Liquid Pearls to scallop border.
  • Stamp sentiment.

Card Recipe:
  • Cardstock: White (Gina K. Designs)
  • Stamps: Wedding Cake, New Beginnings (Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps)
  • Ink:  Memento London Fog (Tsukineko)
  • Accessories:  Glue Pad (Tsukineko), Microfine Glitter (Art Glitter), White Lace Tape (Love My Tapes), Scallop Border Die, New Begginings Die (Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps), Pearls (Want2Scrap), Sqaure Lattice Embossing Folder (Stampin' Up)
