Milestone Birthday

My older sister is celebrating a milestone birthday next week.  I won't tell you how old she is, because that just wouldn't be right (but check out the card...LOL).

I decided to do something a little more detailed than I usually do, so I used the Mojo Monday sketch as my inspiration.  I can't remember the last time I produced a card with so many layers!  I also used the inked embossing folder technique again, so I'm linking to Hand Stamped Sentiments as well.  That technique really provides another level to embossed panels.


I used my favorite DSP in the new SU catalog - Fan Fair.  Love that paper!  The sentiment is from the Made For You set, which has such a cool font.  I only wish there were more stamps in the set!

Happy Birthday for the 27th, Jannene!

I think this card is FABULOUS! The layout is so interesting and the preinked TIEF adds such pretty dimension to your card. I am so glad you added your card to our technique challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth

Gorgeous card! Love the feminine embossing of the background against the bold numbers on top. I really like how the doily borders the bottom of the circle. Great job with the challenge! Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
