Birthday Divas

     Working ahead on some birthday cards.....which rarely happens but I decided to break down and buy myself the new Grand Caliber and a die so its been killing me to not play with them!  This was a fun stamp I purchased from Verses Rubber Stamps - when I saw it I immediately thought of my 'book club' buddies...we have been know to have a glass of wine during our dinner conversations at book club - most of us are older and we have one young un we tease regularly about all the things she needs to know to age gracefully :)  - I have also been in the mood to make an easel card so when the time was available I had a little fun in my stamp room. While I wanted to layer - I didn't want the layers to look like they were all stacked neatly, so I made them skew some to the right and some to the left, it reminds me of an optical illusion.  The yellow pearls were added because I think sometimes you need a little surprise color in a card and this was mine.   


Supplies:  Grand Caliber, Grand Big Scalloped Circle Die, Tag die, ribbon, metal stickers, CS, Verses Rubber Stamp, Memento Ink, Brilliance CS, Copics, Embossing folder.


Challenges I'm entering:  Dream Valley, anything goes - Paper and Such Design, birthday - Ellephantasticschallenge, birthday - Some Odd Girl Blog, shapes, Craft us Crazy, something new or special - Crafty Creations, anything goes - Papertake Weekly, punches and dies,

  9. Great card! And yes, my shelves will be filled with lots of stuff soon enough! I'm very impatient and wish they were filled right now! And I wish that I wasn't the one that has to figure out where to put it all. I used to be very good at organization and then I became a mom and all my skills flew out the window!
