Saturday Step by Step - Pion Birthday Greetings

Hello Everyone!

It's time for another Saturday Step by Step over at FRILLY AND FUNKIE! This time I have put together a lovely Spring Birthday card for a dear friend of mine using my two two biggest loves in my craft room right now, Pion Design Papers and mixed media products, all available at Linda's shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I do hope you will pop on over and visit me there for lots more photos and a step by step tutorial on how I put this together!




UPDATE:
My card won an award in the following wonderful challenge:


***
We interrupt your regularly scheduled spring programming to bring you this important winter announcement!! MOTHER NATURE HAS GONE INSANE!! You can't see me right now, but I am giving her some well deserved cut-eye! I waited all winter for some winter weather, and now it's too late! You should never be able to use the phrases 'patio furniture' and 'lots of ice' in the same sentence unless you're describing your afternoon Daiquiri!! 

Oh well, it pretty as all get out, so what the heck! Here it is, my winter in spring time!







Remember the little nest that looked a lot like my missing sweater? Now it just looks like a giant snowball, I sure hope whatever critters are in there, that they are bundled up snug as a bug!


...and remember the tree that looked like it was covered in spider webs...DOH!



Everyone say hello to Mr Greyson Twitchy. I call him Greyson because he has grey hairs, and Twitchy because he does this cute little dance with his feet to avoid being on the cold ground for too long, funny as heck! It was nerve-racking to watch the little guy trying to balance on that icy railing! Geez!



Normally this is when I would bow out, but it's a big day here at My Little Craft Things, and I will be throwing another card at you in just a few hours. Hope to see you then! Hugs :)

  6. Love, love, love this one Pamellia - the colours of soft green and pink are perfect together.
    Welcome My Greyson Twitchy - be encouraged, winter does not last forever, although it does give some fabulous photographs to the maestro who photographed you.

  8. Love your gorgeous card Pamellia, the perfect layering and composition always grabs my attention on all your cards and then the wonderful colours and embellishments - wow, you did it again. Can't believe your winter photos, how did that happen? The world weather patterns are certainly all over the place. Mr Greyson Twitchy seems to be coping though.
    Just wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me such a lovely comment on my DecoArt news, I so appreciated it and to say Happy Easter.

  26. My mouth dropped open twice on this post...first for the amazing card!! Oh my goodness, I feel this way about ever card you make, but this may be my favorite!! Oh, I love the romantic colors and the layers and the details!! It's stunning, Pamellia!! As soon as I can stop swooning over the pics...I'm heading over to see how you put it together!!

    The second time was for those pictures of snow!! What the heck, Mother Nature?? What a cruel joke she is playing on you. It's sunny with blue skies here but a bit chilly...I'm not complaining in the least after seeing your pics!! I need a jacket just to look at them!! But what a sweetie Greyson Twitchy is!! So cute!! I don't know how you can tell them all apart. There are a hundred of them here and they all look alike to me :D I'm scrolling up to see your next project now before I head over to F&F. Chat with you again in a moment ;)

  30. Hi Pamellia
    Refined and quiet elegance. Stunning!
    Ah, good ol' Ma Nature likes to throw the curve balls. Yesterday, glorious sunshine, washing out and dried in a couple of hours around 18 deg. Today, freezing, torrential rain and strong winds.
    Better bring that wine cooler back in lol!

  40. Our seasons seem to be in a real muddle at the moment, one day it's Spring, the next bleak Winter snow, I feel so sorry for the animals and birds caught up in this weird roller-coaster of temperatures and weather.
    Your card today, as always has blown me away with it's beauty. The papers are gorgeous, I can see why you have fallen in love with them. I love this design with the layered tags. Your special friend will adore this beautiful card and treasure it.
    Happy Easter Day!

  53. A beautiful card Pamellia, those paper are very pretty and so feminine. I love the look of all of the layered tags and your beautiful bow. I have never thought of making a frame out of corrugated card, what a fantastic idea.

    Snow at last, snow at last but, just as you say, not now when all of the flowers are poking their heads out and the birds and animals are pairing off and making babies! Hs Mother Nature gone totally bonkers this winter?

    Keep warm.

  56. Truly the most delicate, dainty, sweet, soft and frilly card EVER Pamellia. It is just the epitome of chic feminism. My Mama would have totally loved receiving this card. So like her. It is a very very very very precious creation.

    Loved seeing Grayson Twitchy - eheheheheh - such a cute story about his name!!! Dear me... yes - it IS wintery there. I laughed out loud seeing your 'missing' sweater covered in ice... not that it's funny but then again... it is!!! Brrrrrrrrrrrr - brrrrrrrrrrr. I love seeing your photos - but they sure make me shiver!!! XXj.

  62. How incredible your "double layers" of "double tags" looks, Pamellia! A gorgeous design idea, and just so soft and lovely - and wonderful way of incorporating the look of tags into a soft project. You even have a corrugated tag on its side in the middle - beautiful creation, my sweet friend! hugs, de
