Happy Birthday Friend!

I made this card for a good friend who is reaching that magical number this year ---50!!

She is one of those friends who you see maybe once a year, but who you know is always there and available to you whenever you need her!

I used the Papertrey Ink set Women of Life, a set that has everything you need for those loved women in your life!!

I stamped the stems image in Brilliance black on Papertrey Ink's white cardstock. Then I took the individual flowers and stamped them in Papertrey's aqua mist and spring moss ink.

I cut out and embossed the image with the rectangle nestabilities plain and adhered it to Papertrey's aqua mist cardstock that was cut out and embossed with the nestabilities scalloped rectangle.

I set that aside and made my card base from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Blessing patterned paper and the aquamist cardstock.

I ran a piece of the aquamist cardstock through the Cuttlebug bloom dots embossing folder and glued it to the patterned paper.

Then I wrapped a piece of spring moss satin ribbon (freakin' beautiful!!) around the paper and through the image where I had used the Stamping Up's slot punch. The image is adhered with pop up glue dots.

I cut out a small oval with the nestabilities scalloped petite oval, stamped the word "Friend", and glued it with Tombow Mono glue - the glue I use 99% of the time!! and the it was done and ready to send away!!

I can't believe I am actually going to send this card ahead of time! I usually am scrambling to get to the store to buy a card and post it days before the birthday!! It is soooo fun to be able to whip (?) up a card in seconds (yeh right) and send it away!! LOL!

With me it is never seconds, but I always, usually, mostly love the results!! LOL!

Snowing to beat the band here......ugh.....getting a little tired of ol' man winter. I love that winter is referred to as an old man don't you??!
