A Special Birthday


Happy Friday! The weather here in New England is perfect. Just like a summer day should be, warm but not roasting like last week. We celebrated a very special birthday at my house. My daughter turned 30. It is hard to believe that she is this old, where do the years go. I guess that makes me older than I feel and hopefully look! I wanted to make sure I made a very special card with everything that she loves, the color pink, roses, pearls, lacey things and anything that sparkles. I decided to use my Rubber Stamp Tapestry Rose Set because of the softness you can create. I made the heart shape to show our love for her. It is hard to see in the picture but I dotted all the small accent flowers on the heart with diamond Stickles. I am so glad that she liked it.

Here are some fabulous challenges that fit my card

Anything Goes Challenge #47-Happy Birthday/Celebration
Crafty Ann's Challenge #47-Scallops and/or fancy borders
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #43-Use A Lot, 3 or more of your fav embellishment. I used pearls and roses.
Birthday Sundaes Challenge #21-Birthday Card with Birthday wording on the front
Craft your Passion Challenge #70-"under the Sea" or "Your Favorite Season", I picked fav season-Summer because of all the beautiful , blooming flowers in my garden

These are all fantastic challenges so be sure to stop by and play along with them! Wonderful inspiration to see at each one!

Thank you so much for stopping by today to see what I have created today. I really appreciate all the wonderful comments that you leave for me to read. Have a fabulous weekend!

Happy Creating,
Mary

This is gorgeous card. So cute design. I want to try to design like this for the Plastic cards, if you don't mind. I appreciate this.

Captivating the way you embellish admires me a lot.. i suggest you should go for Plastic business cards designs..
