My Granddaughter Katie turns 8 years old on Thursday.  She is a budding artist – even posting on my blog on occasion.  So, it was no surprise when she told her Mom that she wanted to have an art party.  Of course, I had to get in on the fun too.

After posting this, I saw how crooked my layer was and I just had to fix it.  However, I did not take new pictures but please pretend that it is just right……  

Gorgeous Grunge has to be one of my most used stamps.  Somehow it is just fits many of my cards.  With an Art Theme card, I couldn’t go wrong with the splatters and splotches.  Most of the Bright Inks are used in my creation. 


Stampin’ Up! played a big part in this card.  Talented Trio – a new stamp in the 2015 – 2016 catalog is exactly what I needed for this card.  The best part, Katie has lots of dark curly hair just like the girl on the stamp!

The inside of the card is also fitting for any aspiring artist.  Splatters and splotches everywhere with a birthday wish tucked in the middle.

A sprinkling of a few Bright Sequins adds a touch of bling to the front of my card.  And a small strip of Everyday Chic Washi Tape seems to pull it all together.

Happy Birthday Dear Katie!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
