Happy Birthday….

17 Mar

It seems like forever since I have made a blog post, actually almost a week!  I have several projects ready for posting and this is one of them.  I saw this layout somewhere on the weird wide web and I apologize but I just can’t find where I got the idea from.

The paper I used for this card is from my favorite paper pad, Recollections – Garden Florals.   I think it is pretty rare when you find a paper pad where you are confident that you will use every piece of paper in it!  I am actually contemplating buying another  one of these paper pads! LOL!!  Yes, I admit it…. I am a paper hoarder! LOL!!!

The sentiment is by Just Rite – Birthday Sentiments Set and I used my Spellbinders circles to cut out the moon shape around the sentiment.  I am really pleased with how this card turned out.  Kim has asked me to develop a class around this layout so you will be seeing this card again using some different supplies 🙂

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
