Happy Birthday to Julie!

Hi Everyone

It was recently Julie's birthday and as she's my Stampin' Up surrogate mum, I thought I'd better make her a nice birthday card. Here is what I came up with: is a close up of the pretty bits...

I really enjoyed making this card - I distressed all the flowers which took a while but I think the end result was worth it. I used the sketch over at Simply Stampin' Challenge for my DT entry.

Card: Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
DSP: Elegant Soiree
Stamps: Sanded, Medallion, Sincere Salutations
Ribbon: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Punches: Scallop Trim Border punch, Boho Blossoms
Brads: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Other: Fancy Flowers die, Big Shot, Distressing Tool

Thanks for stopping by

  1. I love crumb cake with baja breeze. And the big flower is so pretty. This was a great sketch, I'm sure I'll use it over and over.

  2. This is a very special birthday card, gorgeous! I love the layered, distressed blooms!
