Hi, guys! Hope your day is going well. I thought I would share with you two cards I made on Sunday. I was asked by a friend to make a card for her best friend's 65th birthday. She let me create whatever I wanted. It was a lot of fun to make. This background stamp I used is an older one by Stampin' Up that I just LOVE. I heat embossed the background with white powder to set it off against the dark paper.
Paper: Stampin' Up, Ranger Speciality Stamping
Ink: Archival, Versamark
Misc: White Embossing Powder, Tim Holtz numbers, flower, gem
Die: Deckle Rectangle Spellbinders
The next card I am sharing with you was made for a friend of mine who is celebrating her friend's 100th birthday! Talk about a milestone birthday! It was the first time I have made a card for someone turning 100 and it was a hoot and a privilege. I had free reign on this card as well so I decided to keep it simple with some bright colors and easy to read numbers. I used acrylic numbers and colored them with my Copic markers to match the ribbon.
Paper: Gina K Designs White, Husk Note Card Ink Pad NYC

I really love making cards for birthdays, and when they are such special occasions I am very tickled and honored. Hope your day is a great one and that you find a few moments to do something you love. I know I plan to carve out a bit of "me" time tonight.
