Happy Birthday, Mommy!
This posting is dedicated to my mother whose birthday is today! We celebrated this weekend with dinner at SweetWater Tavern and a movie - Slumdog Millionaire. The food was fabulous and the movie was OUTSTANDING! Mac and I love SweeWater and decided to share it with her and she soon realized why we rave over it! The food and service is like no other. No wonder there is almost always a wait (good thing we phoned ahead because our wait time was nearly 2 hours) and no carryout order policy!! As for the movie, normally I do not like the award winning/nominated films, but this one I really enjoyed. If you have not seen it already, well please try; it's worth every penny! I haven't seen a lot of movies, but I think Slumdog beats Benjamin Button!
This card was inspired by the Loonie Stamper's Challenge colors of lemon tart, dark chocolate, raspberry fizz, and plum pudding. When I saw the colors, I thought that there was no way I could make card with those colors. I ended up liking how it turned out, but more importantly, so did my mom (well at least she said she did)!!!
So, will you make a card with these colors? Well, here's how I made this one:
- Make card base by trimming cardstock to 4.25" x 11" then score at 5.5"
- Stamp damasks in a pattern on card base.
- Trim raspberry fizz cardstock into two different strips and adhere to bottom of card base.
- Tie ribbon around card base.
- Adhere flowers and dew dots over damask pattern.
- Stamp sentiment.
