Happy Birthday…


Good evening friends,  Today I have for you a Birthday Card I made with 3 different challenges in mind.

1. Casual Fridays has asked us to incorporate embossing in our creation!  What a great challenge!

2. Is this wonderful Color Palette from The Play Date Cafe: Peach, Navy Blue and Stone! and

3. Is this great sketch to tie it all together from one of my favorite sketch challenges ispy Sketches!

I struggled with this card the other night so I walked away from it.  I went back to it when I got home from work today, and it all fell into place!  Love when that happens!

Supplies that I used to tie it all together.  Dots embossing folder along with a cute set of  embossing folders called Celebration.  They are 2 inches so cute!

Scrap Design paper that I have had for at least 10 years. The rest of the cardstock is either Gina K and or SU.

Sentiment is SU and is called Happy Thoughts, my cupcake is from Michaels.

Finish it off with: ribbon,buttons and stickles and some paper piecing!

Thanks so much for ALL your kind words lately…I so appreciate it!

Have a good night!
