Happy Birthday!


Hi Friends!

Happy weekend to you!  I'm just popping in quick to share a card with you that I made for a co-worker who recently had a birthday this month.  She loves the color green and being out in nature.  And, she doesn't like anything frilly at all.  Making a card that is not frilly is a bit of a challenge for me.  I thought...hmm...ok...going with the tree dies and snowflakes should be a safe bet.  She said she liked it, so my card making mission was accomplished!  As you can see above, it's a fairly simple card.  I won't go into detail, and you can note the supplies listed below.  I'm entering this card over at the following challenges...

Word Art Wednesday and City Crafter Challenge.

Thanks so much for visiting here today.  I hope you have a great weekend, enjoy! 

Supplies:

Paper:  Kraft Outlet, Basic Grey, SU
Stamp:  PTI
Ink:  SU(Old Olive)
Dies:  Spellbinder's (Trees)
           MFT:  Circle, sentiment strips
Snowflake Punch:  McGill
Candy Dots:  SU

  16. This turned out beautiful, Maria--even without being frilly! ;) That dp is gorgeous, and the snowflakes were great accents for it. I LOVE the way you staggered the 3 trees and made one of them a different shade of green, too.
