.... for your friendship!
I just wanted to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday and for all your wishes regarding our first home. It's truly exciting and nerve racking at the same time. Toni and I are doing the countdown 'till we hear from our realtor...3 days more to go :)
Since I can't send everyone a thank you card to all of you, I decided to make a card last night after we got home from dinner last night, we had Sushi...YUM! My daughter wasn't happy that I pick Japanese food for my birthday but as she said it...NO CHOICE, it's your day...you pick! On our way to the restaurant, she keeps telling me that Winerznetzel sounds really good...I almost cave in but I told her that I can take her for her birthday next year there...LOL!
Anyway, back to the card. I really like the card Ashley Newell (hi Ashley!) of A New Design... created last week (click here) when combined two challenges from Clean and Simple Stamping and Loonie Stamper's Challenge, so I decided to do the same. The layout is from Clean and Simple and the color combination is from Loonie Stamper.
The base card is Spring Moss card stock from Papertrey Ink measured 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and folded in half. The Kraft card stock is measured 4" x 5 1/4" and run through Cuttlebug using Birds and Swirls CB embossing folder. The flowers are from Papertrey Ink, Beautiful Blooms set and was stamped on Whisper White card stock using Spring Moss Hybrid Ink. The smallest flower from the same set fits exactly to a CB flower die, the sentiment is from Stampin' Up, Upsy Daisy stamp set. I finished the card with Spring Moss gross grain ribbon and self-adhesive rhinestones.

Paper: Whisper White, and Kraft card stock from Stampin' Up, Spring Moss card stock from PaperTrey Ink
