This birthday card is for a very special lady so I put a bit more effort into making it pretty. She is known in my church as the Card Lady...because each year she gives every adult in our church a birthday card...and often anniversary & get well cards too, and we have a big church...over 200 adults! She prints them using a Hallmark program. Now it is HER birthday, and she has been having some pretty serious health issues, so she needs some encouragement, appreciation and prayers.
I really enjoyed making this one! Used a ton of different supplies, which I will try to put in a list here:
Dies- Gina Marie "Fronds", Sizzix "Beautiful Wings"
Punches- Martha Stewart "Doily Edge"
Embossing folder- Sizzix "Vine & Berries"
Stamps- Inkadinkado "Birthday", Stampin Up "Painted Harvest",
Our Daily Bread "Scripture Series 3"
Inks- FSJ "Black Licorice", Excelsior "Green"
Cardstock- American Crafts "Dear Lizzy", Paper Studio white base
Flowers- StampingScrapping "Gardenia Pk" & "Micro Rose Open",
I Am Roses "Cherry Blossom, white"
Embellishments- Ranger "Liquid Pearls, Platinum", ribbon from stash

The birthday sentiment was computer generated, and perfect for the situation: birthday, but also health problems. I always like to decorate the inside a bit too...to carry through the "I made this special for you" idea. And an appropriate Bible verse, the ultimate "good cheer"!
Thanks for stopping by today! Happy March!
Spring is just around the corner now!
