Happy Birthday...

Happy Thursday!!! So I am sure many of you out there know who Dawn McVey is. Well, if you don't please go check out her blog, it's called My Favorite Things and boy does she have some serious talent!!! I just love her style, clean and simple!!! So I fell in love with this card that she made and had to make one for myself. She used all cardstock for hers, but I changed that on mine and used all dp from Prima called "The Breathe Paper Collection". I found this really cute mat stack of paper at Michael's and it was on SALE so I had to get it!!! :D {Well that's always the excuse I give myself when I really don't need to buy anything!!! LOL!!! } My card is a standard card at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I used my corner rounder to make the scalloped edge and added some CTMH sparkles to give it some bling!!! :D I used my Happy Birthday stamp set for the sentiment, and I also used some foam squares to add some dimension to the card. This card is for a friend of mine whose birthday was back on May 5th, but we just couldn't seem to get together due to all of our busy schedules. Well now that all of our busy schedules have cleared, we will meet on Monday for dinner...so I will have to wait till then to give it to her.


I also took a close-up pic of the scalloped edge, sparkles, and the dimension of the card!!! I am so happy with the outcome of this card...I hope my friend likes it!!! :D

Stamps: Happy Birthday (CTMH) Paper: Prima "The Breathe Paper Colletion", White Daisy & Crystal Blue CS (CTMH) Ink: Twilight (CTMH) Accents: Sparkles (CTMH), White Twill (Martha Stewart), 3-D Foam Squares & Corner Rounder




Have a Fabulous Day!!!
