...and here is the card I made for my sweet, adorable friend, Dana :)
It's hard to see in the picture, but I used the dry embossing technique with my Cuttlebug Swirls folder on the green panel. I also incorporated heat embossing using my flourish from PTI, VersaMark and white embossing powder. I LOVE how it looks with the vintage flower I created! I used my brand new pack of Basic Grey patterned paper that Tammy bought for me to make the flower. I used the three smallest sizes of the Spellbinders Blossom die to cut my bloom, and I added two layers of each size. I crumpled the paper and then sponged Tim Holtz' Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges. I sewed the button on and used Zip Dry to adhere to my card.
I know there isn't a sentiment on the front...I just didn't want to add any more to Dana's card...but this IS a birthday card, I promise!! To prove it, I took a picture of the inside this time...and I even decorated it a little ;] I mean, this IS Dana we're talking about! She deserves all the bells and whistles!! LOLSoooo, HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sweet friend! Hope your friends and family treat you like a queen this weekend! This colorful card (hopefully your style...I know you love color...and NOT red :O) is on it's way to you! I just wish I could celebrate with you ;]
