No Sketch, No Challenge --- Just My Own Design

June is a very popular month for birthdays in our family.  Yesterday was my step-dad's birthday and this is the card I made for him.  I love the colors and dp in the K&Co "Life's Journey" collection.  It includes lots of old postcards, newspaper pages and postage stamps, too. Because the paper is all double-sided the inside of the card has images of old literature. The stamped image is from Inkadinkadoo. There's just something magical about the script-butterflies-time pieces collage of this stamp that makes it so versatile.  I embossed it with Ranger's Seafoam White powder; the same for the birthday greeting.  The 3d dragonfly stick-on is from K&Co, too.  A few little square rhinestones  finish it off.

This was really so quick and easy!  Just tear a piece here and there, run them through the Xyron for easy attaching, and add some embellies.

I hope your week has been grand and that the weekend brings fun and relaxation.
