A Hello Kitty Birthday Shadow Box

If it weren't for my niece's birthday, I probably wouldn't be crafting.  I'm still recovering and recuperating.  Maybe it's a good thing my niece's birthday party is today . . . it forced me to get my 'okole, or should I say, my lazy butt, in gear!  I have tons of things to do!  I have my annual newsletter that should've been mailed the first week of December including my Christmas card, my December OCS (yay, I got Shirley N.!), not to mention a bit more Christmas shopping and that doesn't include the wrapping of these gifts!  I can't bear to think about it, I just have to get my act together.

I decided to do a Shadow Box Birthday Card.  I didn't have time to do a Diorama Card so I chose to do a simplified Shadow Box.  Super easy and pretty fast!  Can't remember where I saw this (I think it was on one of those challenge blogs), but it's such an easy card to do.

Here's what I did.  If you ask me about tutorials, I pretty much do my own thing with all kinds of measurements.  I chose to cut a 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of CS in half.  Then, scored the 2 pieces at 1/2" & again at 1" on both sides.  Crease the score lines and CREATE any way you like!  Adhere the 2 pieces at the 1/2" score line and voila!  This was my rendition!  :)

I use a cute flower DP in my stash and my HK Sizzix Die along with my nesties (for the window).  Added pearls, dew drops, stickles, and ribbon.

Ok, this was a quickie post . . . have to JOURNEY on to get ready for the birthday party!   See y'all later!  Hope you're having a great weekend thus far!!!  :o)
