Happy Birthday Sharon............


On the 15th of this month a very special person in my life is having a birthday and I made this card for her today. I am also using this card for the Splitcoast Stampers “Ways to Use It” challenge (WT182), “Specialty Paper”.

For the background I used some Bazzills cardstock and my brand new “Autumn Leaves Flourishes v2” stamps by Rhonna Farrer to design my own “designer” paper. I stamped using my VersaMark “Watermark” stamp pad, then some “Detail Clear” embossing powder and my heat gun. That and the bow that I made using some “Harvest” ribbon that I purchased from Walmart some time ago were the main design elements of this card. The corners were designed by me using the software for my Pazzles Inspiration (digital cutter) and after cutting them I ran them through my Cuttlebug using the “Textile” embossing folder. I then added the pearl elements. Needless to say, I am going to have to make a box to put this card in, as it’s too bulky to fit into an envelope! The "sentiment" was done using MS Word and the "BrockScript" font.

Fall is quickly approaching and next year my friend will be 50! I wanted to use fall colors for this card as she is approaching the “fall of her life”! I sure am glad that she’s not into crafting/card making, etc…..so she won’t be reading this!lol
Finished Card Size: A7/5"x7"

Stamps: Autumn Leaves "Flourishes v2" by rhonna farrer
Inks: VersaMark "Watermark"
Accessories: Pazzles Inspiration, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Brides "Ivory Pearl Seal", Offray "Green Satin Ribon" & Harvest Ribbon
