Happy Birthday, Mario Rossi!

Hi, guys! Hope all is well!  I thought I would share a birthday card I made for Mario Rossi for his birthday.  I enjoy his BTS (Behind the Scenes) on Facebook where he shares what Tim Holtz is working on. It could be projects, or new products, or even Mario's homemade pizza (that always makes me hungry when I see it!).   He works so hard year-round, and shares so much of his time and humor with all of us.  If you follow Tim and Mario, you would know they love Starbucks.  So I decided to make my card using a coffee theme.

Stamps: Stampin' Up, Crafty Secrets
Paper: Desert Storm, Tim Holtz French Industrial
Ink: Distress Inks, Distress Markers, Archival Black
Misc.: Spellbinder Deckle Rectangle Die, Tim Holtz Label Letters

This is the envelope I decorated.  I love the Simon Says Stamp Envelope set.

Wishing Mario a very Happy Birthday!  Thanks so much for all you do!

Until next time!

Oh Winnie, a girl after my own heart! Coffee! So very charming, and a perfect birthday card! I love how you did the inside of your card to match the front - fabulous!

As a coffee lover, this card really caught my eye. Your sentiments (inside and out) is so perfect. Love the coffee colored theme too.

This is so clever! I am not a coffee drinker, but even I can appreciate such a brilliant card. Well done Winnie. Bet he loved it!
