Nov 23 2009
In my family – including Mom and Dad, my siblings, their spouses, my nieces and nephews and hubby and my kids – there are 15 of us. But would you believe there are 7 November birthdays? Actually, 8 if you count our puppy, Sophie, who, of course, gets her own celebration.
So, for me, November is all about parties, cakes and cards.
I made this card for my daughter who turned 13 this weekend. A teenager! It’s hard to believe how quickly the years have flown by.
I used bright colours but kept the card simple. The colours are all in colors – Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry. The die is a new favourite, Blossom Party, a Stampin’ Up! exclusive. I love how the layered flowers fit together and layer so easily. I used textured cardstock from the assorted in color package, a great way to purchase all of the colours. The "A Little Birthday Cheer" greeting was stamped in Melon Mambo ink. To finish, I made some ribbons of cardstock and topped them with Bermuda Bay grosgrain ribbon.
