Amy, in honor of this day, I have created this lover-ly card :) So pretend, for a moment, that you opened your mailbox and lovingly ripped open a big fat envelope from me, ok? HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope today is the best one yet!
Truth be told, my WOSFF (web-o-sphere friend forever) Laurie im'd me yesterday afternoon reminding me that it was Amy's birthday... after I kicked myself for forgetting, I said I'd love to hop along with the girls today :)
Disclaimer: please excuse the poor picture quality...especially the colors! You may want to click to enlarge, but it still might not help :)
By some strange coincidence, I managed to leave the dreaded office early & rushed around to create what you are seeing now... maybe I should work under pressure more often? It looks WAY better in person... trust me.
Stamps: Swooping Sentiments, Victorian Elements (The Angel Company)
Cardstock: kraft (TAC), plum (Papertrey)
Ink: VersaMark, Eggplant VersaMagic
Other: linen texture plate (Papertrey), ribbon (Hobby Lobby),
rose trim (JoAnn's), pearls (unknown), Scor-Tape
Amy has such a fabulous style to cardmaking... simple but detailed. It's hard to do, but she makes it look easy :) So, this card may be a little more foofy, but I was trying to channel you, Amy!
