A Special B-day Card

This birthday card is special simply because it is for a special lady: my sister-in-law Julie. She is such a sweet and talented "girl" (she still has a couple years before she hits the big 5-0)! By profession she is a floral designer but she does so many artsy craftsy things...she is amazing! SO creative AND such a big heart! Did I say, she's amazing? She is! For this card, I followed a color "sketch" or theme required for a certain challenge: using kraft, cream, dark brown, + "choice"... and I chose aqua.

  • My ingredients:

  • Paper- most is from my stash, the brown w/aqua swirls is K&C.

  • Stamps- Lg. swirl is "Vintage Flourish" from Stampabilities, Sis is Storybk alphabet from Stampendous, connected hearts are from "Anglaise Lace" from, plus a few others; on the inside is a Bible verse from Verve Stamps.

  • Die-cuts- Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4

  • Rhinestone gems- Basics by Kaisercraft

  • Ribbon- from my "growing!" stash.

Entering this card in 2 challenges: - "Colors: Kraft, etc." - Challenge #42, "Special Birthday"

I love this card, the ribbon is beautiful, great bow! Our challenge was a combined ATC and colour challenge though. Thanks for playing with us at the OCC this week.

Oh JOY! A lovely, graphic-style card with not a wide-eyed girl or cute teddy in sight! LOL!
Not that I don't like those things, but it's soooo nice to see something a little different...!
Great colours and fab bit of floral-style ribbon.
Dead cool!
Thank you for coming over to play at Crafty CardMakers this week!
