My day didn't start off as planned today. I had every intention of getting up this morning and making a birthday card, I had decided on my design etc, but then something terrible happened.
I broke the handle off my Big Shot..........
How, well I don't know as I had been using it correctly for the die I was wanting to cut, the only thing I can put it down to was over the last few weeks I had noticed that the handle when turning wasn't sitting straight in the machine, and that my clear plates were a little bowed .
Anyway that is a problem I now have to deal with......and it meant I had to change my idea for the birthday card.
Anyway here is my finished card without the use of my Big Shot.
I chose to do an easel card today, and use the All a Flutter Butterfly Stamp, (which describes how I am feeling after breaking my Big Shot). The tiny leaves down the right side are from the Confetti Stamp Set and the Sentiment from the Hostess Set Occasional Quotes.
I have teamed up the new In Colours Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz with Whisper White. Other items used include the Scallop Border Punch, Wide Oval, Large Oval, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Brads and a small amount of Glitter Glue on the Butterfly.
