Beau Chateau Birthday and PPA Sneak Peek

It's now February and I have been able to get ahead making birthday cards. This one is for March! Once again, I began my design with a die-cut from the Beau Chateau Side Notes (122379 pack of 24 die-cuts $5.95) There are two die-cuts of each of 12 designs. Think how many projects you can create using these designs that are ready-to-go. The die cuts are made of heavyweight felt-weave paper, so they have a gorgeous texture for water coloring or using your markers. You can leave them as they are, or color and embellish them, as I have here.

I used Stampin' Write Markers to color the flowers and leaves. Then I added Crochet Trim, Basic Pearls and punched some borders in matching card stock. Simple, with a beautiful effect in no time! I accented the Beau Chateau Side Notes die-cut with Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper (122357)

I highlighted the birthday girl's date and wrote in the month and "Happy Birthday" myself using a Stampin' Write Marker.

I hope you enjoyed today's quick card. Here is a sneak peek at tomorrow's Pals Paper Arts Challenge card:

Your card is fabulous, Patti! I LOVE it. March 11th is my anniversary! Of course, the lace and pearls are to die for! Plus, I can't wait to see your PPA card!
