Hi all! Yesterday was my birthday as well as the holiday and we had a really great day! My friend Dawn and I went out to breakfast at Shady Maple (smorgasbord...oink!) and we chatted until noon, she made a small cake for me, then I came home to some "birthday pie" (Kara's idea since "mommy loves pie the most."), I had a little crafting time, Hailey and Nate joined us for the rest of the day, and then ALL of us went to see some fireworks. Fun day! I hope all of you here in the States had a wonderful holiday as well.
This is one of the cards I made yesterday. The layout is Freshly Made Sketch #42 and the colors are from Color Throwdown #199.
Stamps are from Sweet Nature (Flourishes), papers are called "Glory" (Authentique), I layered some ivory cotton lace over some turquoise satin ribbon, added a "Jovial" button, embossed the kraft panel with Swiss Dots, and popped the main image up on foam tape. The main image is stamped on classic ivory, cut out with a long deckled rectangle (Spellbinders), and colored with Copics (Flourishes Poppy Collection, Flourishes Leaf Green Collection, BG0000, and BG11). Stickles were also added to the rose.
Have a really great day!
