Happy Birthday!

Hi all! Happy Wednesday!!!

It’s such a good day today! I’m going to a mini crop with friends tonight and I’m going shopping in my LSS for some new goodies before I go there. Couldn’t be better! :) Especially since my LSS got the Basic Grey Aspen Frost papers the other day. Love that line! :)

We have a birthday lady at work. She is turning “something” on Thursday and I got to make the card. She likes fall colors and bling, so I used the purple and goldish colored paper from Riddersholm DesignChantilly Dawn and teamed it up with the AMAZING Delicate Aster PreCut Set from Heartfelt Creations. I got these babies from HC to make my Design Team Finalist projects with, and let me tell you I had some serious fun!!! You’ll see the result in a couple of weeks when the finalists are announced – either I’m one of them or not. The suspense for this position is killing me! :)

I stamped and heat embossed 8 flowers in different sizes and cut them out with the coordinated Delicate Asters Die, dry embossed some to shape them and then layered them for a fall Aster flower. I finished it off with some Diamond sparkle mist so it actually shines a bit.

I added small Zva rhinestone swirls for the extra bling. And look at that patterned paper! Not hard to understand why it’s a favorite! I’m proud to say I de hoarded it and cut into my last piece of it.

Here is the inside. Kept it clean with lots of space for all the friends and co workers to write their names.
