Last Birthday Card until November!!!

This is the last birthday card I need to make until November.  My entire immediate family all have birthdays in January through July, except for one!

This one is for my mother-in-law who will turn 89 this week.  She loves pink and she loves all flowers, so combining the two along with a couple of simple images from Elegant Edges and Create a Critter along with some pearls, this is what I came up with.  I confess that it took me a week to do this card, primarily because version #1 got tossed in the trash when it was just about finished.  I didn't like it.  Version #2 turned out so much better.

The card base is 5.75w x 5.75h.  Using the frame from Elegant Edges at 5.5w x 5.5h and a Scallop (also from EE)  at 4.5w and 4.29h, I welded the Scallop inside the frame.  Saving the circle cut from inside the scallop, I used that as a template for placing the pearls.  The leaves were cut from Create a Critter at 1.9w x 3.0h.  I stamped the birthday sentiment on off-white shimmer paper and cut to fit inside the pearls, then added the leaves and some Recollection flowers I had in my stash..

With the birthday cards out of the way for awhile, now I can focus on some other projects churning around in my head.  Thanks for stopping by!


I treasure each comment. Thank you for taking the time to leave me some love!
