Happy Birthday, E!

It's WEDNESDAY again! :D You've made it to the middle of the week!! :)

February is a big birthday month for my middle sister's family. You may or may not recall the card I made for R's 18th birthday; this is for E's birthday. E loves the outside; according to Grandma, she's doing the gardening this year. :) So I thought an outdoors-themed birthday card would be appropriate!

LOVELY AS A TREE. I mean, seriously. I don't think they'll EVER be able to retire this set, because it will be difficult to design a more perfect tree set! :D SO very versatile!

So, I stamped it in Jet Black Stazon, then used my Aqua Painters to add Wild Wasabi to the grass and trees, and Bashful Blue to the sky. Then I used the point of the AP and Raspberry Ripple to put some blooms on those trees. I also used it to do the "Celebrate" from the Sale-a-Bration-only stamp set, FEELING SENTIMENTAL. I stamped that and the trees on Whisper White card stock, the card base is Bashful Blue and run through the honeycomb embossing folder. That ribbon is from the special that Stampin' Up! ran a few months ago; that side needed something. :) Oh, and I punched out the "celebrate" with the decorative label punch. :)

OK, I'm outta here! Have a WONDERFUL day - and be SURE to make the time to stamp SOMETHING! :)

I LOVE this card! I see that stamp on many cards; it seems so versatile. Great job, Lori!
