Special Birthday

Playing with some new goodies:

I’m using a couple of my new Reverse Confetti purchases, the sentiment is from the So Very Special set and the scallop is from the Circles ‘n Scallops Confetti Cuts set.  The circle is from Spellbinders.

All that glorious patterned paper {excluding the graph paper which is vintage A Muse} is from Fancy Pants Designs, Everyday Circus!

The peachy paper is Stampin’ Up’s Crisp Cantaloupe.

See that yarn…I bought 3 different colors from M’s…it’s Martha and it is wool…LOVE the added texture it gives this very special Birthday card.

This is going to my {ex} Mother-in-law.  I’m so lucky to have such a great relationship with her…she’s a special lady.

I was inspired by Reverse Confetti’s

My colors were inspired by

Isn’t that a fabulous combo of colors?

So the Crisp Cantaloupe is just the ‘tip of the iceberg’ of my recent Stampin’ Up purchases!  It’s odd to be buying from the ‘Mother Ship’.  Stampin’ Up was what got me into this crazy hobby.

  8. Papers, layout, the sentiment – all are fabulous, but what gives your card ultra impact is who you made it for! You are, indeed, fortunate to have a relationship with your former MIL – and how incredibly special YOU are for keeping that bond flourishing! She'll love this card, as do I!
    Hugs~c
