Happy Birthday

Good afternoon friends! I'm a bit late in posting today...I have had a wonderful morning!! I had my first "Just for Girls" crafting class...it was SO fun! My daughter(who will be 5 in September) felt it unfair that I always got to have friends over to stamp with me, but she never did...so we decided to see how many of her friends would like to come stamp with her...and several did! So, we had a class today, and I'll have the projects to share Thursday, I've got another class scheduled for tomorrow, so I'll wait to post the pics! Really, a wonderful time working with some great girls today!

This card was supposed to be posted last week...it the week of cork, but it missed being posted! So, here is a fun birthday card I made last week.I started with a Whisper White piece of paper. I stamped my stem from the For All You Do stamp set, in Old Olive ink three times for my three flowers. I used a different flower choice for each flower-on the left a Die Cut Bloom pumpkin pie flower with a circle rhinestone brad. In the center, a cork flower that was cut with the Bloom Party die and my Big Shot, I added a rhinestone brad to the center of a Pumpkin Pie button, from the Sherbet button set(that you can get free for just a few more days...read this post to learn how!) And the last flower was cut out with my Big Shot and Daisey #2 die, it has a cork circle(a left over from the Bloom Party cut) and a rhinestone brad in the center.

Once my flowers were finished, I tied it all up with some stripped Pumpkin Pie ribbon. I did one flat ribbon across the card, then added a "loop" of the stripped ribbon and 1/4" regal rose grosgrain. The added a button, from the Button Latte set of buttons (yes, you can get this one free too!)

After I had that main panel all finished, I mounted it on a layer of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then layered that on my card, which was Regal Rose.

My sentiment came from the my new A Little Birthday Cheer stamp set. I stamped it with Old Olive ink and then used my Modern Label punch to give a fun to my sentiment. I attached the sentiment with dimensionals and that finihsed it all off!

I hope you are enjoying your day! We've got a couple more weeks before school starts, and are trying to enjoy these last few lazy days! I love summer!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

See you tomorrow, with some LAD new Monthly Mix samples!!

Brilliant idea! I love your creation. I'm planning to give my grandfather a birthday card since his birthday is fast approaching. Thank you for sharing!
