Summer Birthday card
So her birthday card is the ribbons and lace that remind me of when she was my baby doll, and I could dress her all in pink and flowers. (She sure loves dressing her baby girl in flowers and lace, too.)
I started out with a base of Crumb Cake paper, added a layer of Certainly Celery which I embossed with the stripes. Embossed some Wisteria Wonder with the dots, and cut a lacy edge. The flowers (or are they weeds?) on Very Vanilla card stock were stamped with certainly Celery, then I wipe off the flower heads, and stamp just the blossoms with Wisteria Wonder. I love doing that technique, and I keep a little travel pack of baby wipes handy, and just snip off a little piece of the towel big enough for my clean-up job, and save the rest of the wipe in the package. Really handy trick. The sentiments inside and out were from Bring on the Cake stamp set.
I enjoyed making this card, and hope you like it too. Stop back real soon :)
