No Sew Booklet Birthday Card



I'm teaching a "No Sew Booklet" class next Sunday and thought I'd make a larger version of the booklet the students will be making. And then we were having a Gelli Plate evening this past Friday and again my brain was working  BIG GRIN - thought I'd try mine at home (just bought it recently...) and pull a bunch of papers for my backgrounds etc. WOW was that easy and addictive. Also went to my Friday Frolics evening and pulled more backgrounds for another booklet coming eventually...

And since it's a friend's birthday coming up soon, thought I'd turn this booklet into a Birthday card especially for her, so did a bunch of calligraphy inside.

You can see more details and descriptions etc  by clicking on the booklet image. Enjoy

I'm using a Quietfire Design calligraphy stamp for the cover "How old would you be..." love this stamp.

And it fits for these challenges:
Pin & Tack Challenge  #9 anything goes
Anything Challenge  #92 shaped but not square
Divas By Design  #84 anything goes
Crafty Ribbon Challenge  #45 no DP
Crafty Catz Weekly  #182 anything goes
Old Back Porch  #71 card a week
Simply Create Too  #37 anything goes
Wags n Whiskers  #104 BD for a female
Scribbles challenge  #4  shaped or easel

Okay Yogi- you've really got my attention here-again! I have GOT to try this. I have a bunch of gelli prints that I did last week for a journal. Now I know what to do with the extras :)
