a little something charming!

a quickie post today, now that all of the excitement with the Nouveau Girls release at Some Odd Girl has died down a little (but just a little, 'cuz these lovelies will be popping up all over the blogosphere!)...

i was asked to make an anniversary card for my very sweet friend, and while she loves the cutesy stuff, i thought i'd go in a different direction with this one. of course it was a challenge to AVOID putting some adorbs little character on the final product, but here's what i came up with:



simple, but i used one lonely piece of patterned paper from an older DCWV stack, added some white AC Remarks stickers, stamped my sentiment (which is a combination of Some Odd Girl and CC Designs sentiments) onto a paint swatch from Home Depot, mounted it onto a second swatch, added my ribbons and charm, distressed and doodled the edges, and voila! i hope she likes it! oh, and here's the inside:



(that's a MSE! sentiment in there) i hope she likes it! i just dropped it off in her mailbox. now i must get working on birthday party invitations for her daughter, who's turning 14 next month. thanks for keeping me busy, Z! :)

so i played along at Stamptacular Sundays - their challenge is "Charm Me!", so i hope there's something charming about this card! ;)

and at DYSU, they're looking for something DISTRESSED!
