Birthdays are the Best

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

My card today was inspired by this card from Kathi. My jaw literally dropped when I saw it, it spoke to me so. I didn't have the same embossing folder that she used so I made do with what I had. While I don't think my card is nearly as good as the original, I still love it and definitely want to make a few more.
***Supplies***

Stamps: PTI Blooming Button Bits
Other: CTMH pearls

Are you ready for Idol tonight?  I have to admit that it's one of my guilty pleasures. Reynna and I love watching it.  I haven't found a total favorite yet this season but I do really like Big Mike.  And I am rooting for Lily because she's from Colorado.

Beautiful, Alanna! And thank you!! I would have used a softer color, too, had that deep-embossing folder not chewed up everything I tried. Your embossing is very pretty - a folder I've never seen?

Have a great day!

Alanna,
Nice card, the soft color is lovely! I also saved that one of Kathi's to try to imitate! It's a wonderful design and you did a great job with it!
