Happy Birthday To someone Special

Took me all day yesterday to to get one card done.... Sometimes the creativity is not there and we had lots going on...

I love this new embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I had inked up the folder with brown pigment ink and embossed some ivory cardstock last week. This embossing with the inked background is so pretty. Sat on my desk all week waiting for me to figure something out.

I decided to use it with a few other colors from the Hero Arts challenge this week. They provided some colors for the challenge this week. I tried to incorporate all the colors green, orange, deep red, ivory, and brown. (Hence the little pop of green on the button)


  • Hero Arts - Antique Flower Background
  • Hero Arts - Old French Writing
  • Hero Arts - All Occasion
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
  • Penny Black -Poppies
  • Watercolor Pencils
  • Pearls - Michael's
  • Versafine - Vintage Sepia
  • Lace - Unknown

Thanks for stopping by....
