Today is my neighbor Luann's 50th birthday and I wanted to make her a special card. Luann and her family have been such a blessing since we moved here last December. They really have become like family to us. We go to church together, watch football together, go swimming in their pool. They really are amazing.
So I wanted to make her a special card and not just pull one out of my collection. Plus, '50' is kind of a special day! So I decided I would join the fun at the Global Design Project (though, again, there is almost too much talent to compete with) and the fun sketch from the Paper Craft Crew.
For the background I stamped "happy birthday" from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. You may have seen me do this before for this card. I like the way it looks for a background and wanted to do it again!
The numbers are cut in both Rich Razzleberry and Blushing Bride.
These Fancy Frost Sequins matched pretty close in my opinion. The actual colors are Sweet Sugarplum and Soft Sky, but you wouldn't have been able to tell had I told you otherwise, right? :)
The sentiment I chose is from the Number of Years stamp set. I added some Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim, Blushing Bride Solid Baker's Twine and some Gold Metallic Thread. The DSP is the Blooms & Bliss DSP that is currently for sale with the buy 3, get 1 free promotion. Great time to stock up on Stampin' Up!'s designer paper. (Click on DSP promotion image below.)
I hope that you enjoyed this card. I'm off to the neighbor's house to wish her a happy birthday!
Have a great rest of the week!
