Special Birthday


So what do you think about my new card stand? It's a Floral Frog that I got off of ebay for a steal. I love how Dawn McVey's cards look on top of hers. Plus, now I can take pictures outside and let the natural light do all the work.

I tried making a CAS birthday card for a new friend of mine. I recently met her and we hit it off right away. I wanted something special, but not over the top. I rarely give my cards to non-card makers so I often wonder people's perception of this whole hobby. I'm just hoping it doesn't look like my daughter made this in her elementary art class. ;)

Stamps: PTI Friends Til the End, Background Text & Damask Designs
Ink: Versafine black, PTI Raspberry Fizz
Paper: PTI Sweet Blush & Raspberry Fizz, SU Certainly Celery & Old Olive
Misc: CB Swiss Dots folder, PTI Raspberry Fizz Swiss Dots Satin Ribbon, PTI White Button, Liquid pearls, SU Top Note Die

    This is gorgeous! I love the pearls and the gem along with the text on the leaves. I always thought those thingies were some type of antique hair brush.... LOL It looks good!
