A Card That Is Actually Being Mailed Out....



Hi there....

My Mom. I love her. She is the most loving and generous person in the entire world. Anyone who knows her is LUCKY!!! In a few days it will be her birthday. I was wrapping her gifts this morning and realized that I hadn't made her a birthday card yet. As the saying goes, the shoemakers children don't have shoes.

There are some fabulous new challenges that hit my reader this morning, so I got to work and this card came together like peanut butter and chocolate!!!


The first challenge that caught my eye was CASE Study. Here you can see the amazing STUDY from Silke Ledlow.

These fabulous colors came together from The Play Date Cafe!! Gorgeous!!


Here are the supplies that I used on my card...

Card Stock: Stampin' Up & Bazzill
Stamps: Perfectly Clear Birthday Assortment, Jumbo Cling Happy Birthday, Perfectly Clear Garden Beauty (Stampendous)
Ink: Versamark
Embossing Powders: PearLustre Azurite, PearLustre Alexanderite, Periwinkle (Stampendous)
Extras: Ribbon (craft supply), punch (MS), Flower (Reflections), Liquid Pearls (Ranger)

Thanks for taking a look today!! I hope you are as inspired by these challenges as I was!!
Have a super day!
