Metallic Happy Birthday Card

I have not created anything for my blog for almost two weeks now. I don't know if I am just having an artist's block and/or because it is too cold in my craft room which is located in our basement. Despite the portable heater, my hands just get too cold right away. Hopefully, with this creation, I am finally able to break my artist's block and continue to create on despite the cold temperatures.

My sister's birthday is in ten days. With that in mind, I decided to create a card for her. It wasn't easy to break my artist's block. I am unhappy with how things look so I kept changing things around.

My current curiosity right now when it comes to crafting embellishments is the Perfect Pearl powder. It is a part of the Simon Says Stamp January card kit. I watched several video demos using this product which made me curious with it. I don't have the kit. It is sold out the last time I checked the webside. Lucky me, this set is on clearance at Michael's making me feel that it was meant for me to explore.

Thanks for viewing my blog.
