Smile


Hi friends.  Just a quick post to show you what I was playing with today.  Recently, I purchased a few Sizzix Bigz XL dies at really reasonable prices.  This retro camera card is one of my favorites so far.  I had fun playing today and making several of them up.  I created sentiments on the computer to go with for the inside, like Smile, it's your birthday, and Have a picture perfect birthday.










I made the blue and cream one in remembrance of a small
camera I once owned as a young teen.
I pretty much followed the picture on the packaging, and made
some slight changes.  Embossing folders for texture.
Really fun card, don't you just love the flash!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later........
