Happy Birthday Bri!

Happy Birthday Brianna! Best wishes today and everyday. We love you!!

Here is a very quick and easy card with very limited stamping required. SU's embossing folders are great for making quick cards when you are pressed for time. I added a few half pearls, also SU, to jazz up the card a bit. I hope my critic like it, cause this one is hers :-)

Tea Anyone?

Here is another card I did a while back. I participated in an Inspirational challenge. Our swap moderator sent us a picture of a beautiful cake that was yellow and white with a hint of blue and pink. At first I was going to make a baby card. Then I had a better idea and this card was the result. Although I am not too fond of the tea cup stamp image, I like the way it turned out. Hope you do too!

Butterfly Thank You

Made this card a while back but never got around to sharing. This card was made for a sketch challenge I participated in one of my online groups. When I started working with this sketch, I pulled out some pattern paper and went to work with the colors. The colors of green, gray & pumpkin pie was not one that hit me, but when all the pieces were all layed out, I liked it. This card was finished off with the little paper roses. Aren't they cute?

Happy Birthday Mom!

I just love, love, love this card! This is a case of a case. My friend Rose, cased this card from someone else. When she showed it to me, I knew that this was the card for my mother. When my mother opened her card, she loved it too!

I love the fact that this card has a monochromatic look to it. There is white layered and popped up on white. It is also scored, embossed as well as fauxed stitched. There are lots of elements going on with this card, including the "bling". I used black ribbon to add a little contrast, but simply because I did not have any of SU's Poppy Parade ribbon.

All items Stampin'UP! except for Lacey circles die-cut.
