Offering a birthday blessing seems only natural, and fortunately I know a lot of people with birthdays in February! Today I made a card for one of my dearest friends who is celebrating her birthday. She is a fellow stamper and so I wanted the card to be extra special.
Again, this card was in my card box ready to give. (I am determined to use my stash of cards & supplies this year), but I needed to jazz it up a little. I began by adding some rhinestones to one corner because we girls love our bling. I also used the banner punch from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and created several banners to go across the top of the card. After attaching them with snail adhesive, I decided it needed additional detail, so I sewed the banners on using my sewing machine and some bright yellow thread. Actually, I think the best thing about this card is the sentiment from the Chalk Talk stamp set. “I’m so grateful there’s you in the world” is exactly how I feel about this friend! (I also really like the yellow, gray and black color combo.)
Do you have a favorite color combo right now? If so, please leave it in the comment section. I am always looking for fun and challenging color combos! Have a blessed day!
