FMS42 You've Got a Friend

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!

Oh my goodness, forgive me...I did not realize it was birthday yesterday! Happy Birthday Denise!

Your card is simply adorable. I love that polka dot paper in behind your pretty flower...it is so perfect and it really makes it pop. Love how you cute the lace at the left side and then placed a gorgeous button on top. The embossed kraft is really nice too!
