Happy Birthday!

Sort of a strange but fun story about this card. I have been making cards for a new friend from Curves for her to give to her friends and family. I guess she has really been telling everyone how much she loves my cards as one day one of her friends--whom I’ve never met--came in and asked me to make a card for her to give to our mutual friend for her birthday as a surprise. We think it will really stump her how she is receiving a card made by me from a friend who doesn’t know me. :)
I really struggled with what to do for the card--I have the hardest time creating when I am making something for someone else--but then I remembered my friend really liked a card I did with Cafe Lucy from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps so I decided to use that image.

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with copics. I used my new Farm House Sugar Hill papers with Cafe Lucy for an autumn feel. I added a few touches of sparkle with my copic glitter pens and stardust pen. I sponged distress ink around all the edges of the paper.

To finish the front of the card I added some buttons with twine. For the inside I stamped the sentiment and the image and then added some of the decorative paper.

Hope she likes it!

What a fun story! She's going to love it - I think you picked some great papers and colors for a fall birthday card. Love the sponging and buttons too. :)

Gorgeous card Danni - I really love the inked edges. I'm trying to resist that paper pad too but you are not making it easy!
