Have a Fabulous Birthday!

I created this card for the Justrite Friday Challenge 046, sponsored by Scor-Pal. We were asked to use scoring as a technique. I decided to visit the Scor-Pal website for some inspiration. If you have not checked out this website, you will want to. The Criss Cross Card pattern was used to make this card.

First, I scored & folded my card base according to the directions. The paper I used was Meadow Lark from My Mind's Eye. All of the stamps I used came from, "You Inspire Me" by Justrite Stampers. When I stamped the border for the card insert, I decided it was a little plain so I added some black gems to the center of each stamped image. The ribbon around the striped band added the finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by,

Thanks So Much

What a fun card to create! I just love working with flowers. This is a new flower set from Hero Arts.
I stamped the flowers with Rich Cocoa Memento and then colored them with Copic markers.Cutting the flowers out and layering them together really adds a lot of dimension. And of course, we NEED to add a little bling to the center of the flower. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create this lacey, scalloped border.
The greeting is from a set by StampingScrapping.

In 2011, I am going to try to spend more time working on my blog.(Just one of my New Years resolutions!)
Thanks so much for stopping by,
