Celebrate with Style

Happy Saturday everyone!
Although it is only 18 degrees outside and we are expecting -8 tonight, it actually isn't too bad outside in the sun.  I love that about Colorado!  The only thing missing is Kathy... :(

But thinking of Kathy and missing her, while reading her posts, inspired me to stamp today after a long slump of lack of creativity.  Today's card will be on its way to Kathy for her birthday which is in a couple of weeks.

The image is one of my favorite lines, Stampin Bella's Uptown Girls.  The purple is one of Kathy's favorite colors.  Birthday present and sentiment is  Unity.   The patterned paper is Jillibean soup.  There's alot going on otherwise.  Spellbinder dies cuts, including the sun, Martha stewart butterflies and top edging, bottom edging is EK Success, little heart on clouds is Family Treasures and clouds is MFT.  There are also some Swarovski Crystals and LOTS of stickles...  The only OOPS I made was stamping the sentiment crooked...but it's too late when you do it once everything is glued down so it needs to stay.   I tried to "Mask" it by putting down the present but I don't think it did the trick.  Oh well, it's starting to become a running joke between us that her birthday cards always get messed up in some way because I try too hard to make it perfect.  LOL

I hope you enjoyed and were inspired...Thanks for stopping by.  Margaret

  1. Super cool! Can't wait to see it in person because your cards always are prettier and more sparkly than the camera captures. Oh, thanks for the reminder that I have yet another BD coming up!!!! LOL!
