Birthday Card….

So Cath over at Moxie Fab World challenged us to finish the inside of a card…so that the design on the front is carried through some how into the inside. While I wish I could come up with something like the cards she shows on her blog…I am glad for the challenge as I am terrible about finishing the inside. Just Us Girls has a color challenge this week….gray, blush, vanilla, and burgundy..gorgeous combo! So here is what I came up with .  The cardstock, inks, tree stamp, and Happy Birthday sentiment are all CTMH. I used flower punches for all those flowers and pink and cream colored pearls. The outside sentiment is PTI.   The colors washed out some while photo editing, but even with my lightbox the card was looking dark.

I want to thank each and everyone of you who told me I had a beautiful daughter (previous post)….I showed her all the comments that said this (all of them), and she was soooo flattered, it was so cute to see her face light up. She got her braces on the other day, so right now she doesn’t feel that good about herself. What an ego boost for her!

Thanks for stopping by..hope you are all ready for a new week.

Enjoy!

Sarah, this card is so sweet! I love how you stamped all those flowers inside & out! The pearls are such a beautiful accent. Thank you so much for playing along with Just Us Girls! Hope to see you next Saturday for an all new challenge!

This is a great card, Sarah! The colors and the way you finished the inside of the card are wonderful. Perfect pearl accents, too. I love grey, but think I'm still on my original paper pack from about 10 years ago.

Have a great week!

Wonderful card, Sarah! You done did a lot of punching to get the effect, but it was oh so worth it!

Thanks for sharing about your daughter. I'm glad our comments helped boost her spirits a bit!

Have a super week, my sweet, creative friend!

Very pretty! Makes me wish spring would get here even sooner.

Lovely card! Those pearls are very nice!

Hugs to your daughter! I have one in braces right now. It is such a long time to deal with the discomfort and restrictions. Two of our other kids each had them for 2.5 years. In the end they were thrilled with the results. Let us know when we can offer support on the road to her new smile.

Your child is beautiful! Of course she is!

Love this card, Sarah! It is so fresh and just beautiful. I love the tree truck, flowers, and the pearls. The inside is just as pretty at the cover! Love it, dollie!
Haven't gotten the pac, yet, but I'm sure it will arrive soon!
Blessings,
Kim xXx

Hi Sarah! Thank you SO much for stopping by my blog! Not only did you say the nicest things, but you caused me to "whacked me upside the head" - why haven't I looked YOU up before now!?!???? Your blog is just beautiful! I love this card - please tell me your trick for placing all those pearls in just the right spot - I've nearly given up trying to set them down correctly!

It's a perfect card - the inside is JUST right!

Hugs!

Hi Sarah,I love this card. That is the prettiest tree ever. I missed the post of your daughter. She is a very pretty girl. She has beautiful eyes.
Thanks so much for the kind comments. I don't know how you keep up but it really means a lot to me.

Beautifully done! The pearls are a perfect touch.

Danderella said...

Sarah, what a beautiful card...so simple and elegant. I think sometimes I get so carried away with all the "new realease" stamps that I forget the great stuff that CTMH has. Thanks for reminding me!

stampmonkey said...

Sweet card --inside and out! Love all the punched flowers (very creative, Sarah!) and the colors are so pretty together. Great job!

Also, let me be the first (well, second...since I'm sure the folks at Card Patterns were the first -lol) to congratulate you!!! Woo hoo! VERY cute and fun 'Bee Mine' card, and so deserving of the honor bestowed upon you! You go, girlfriend!!! ;D
