Happy Birthday

Click here to buy this card.

Hey there! How's it going? We're still excited about our upcoming trip to New Orleans! We can't wait! I wanted to thank you all for your kind words and support. We truly appreciate it. Here's more about the Essence Music Festival. The link leads you to a list of sponsors and you can see Susan G. Komen's Circle of Promise (who we will be photographing for) is listed there! Isn't that neat?!

Anyway, I made this card last night for Lisa's Scribble This challenge, but the photo was not quite right for the challenge. It ended up that my original photo did not have enough grey gloom for the challenge, so I used a picture of a card I took Sunday, which shows a complete change!

This card was super easy to make. Using patterned paper by Fancy Pants Designs, I trimmed the square (on this sheet of patterned paper, there are multiple squares with various designs) to fit the card. You can use these squares as quick designs for cards. I drew the frame on the card front to simulate the design on the patterned paper. Can you see it?

Wait...I just noticed a tiny white square on my photo. That must have happened when I was in Photoshop. I'm such a dork! :) I'll learn how to breeze through Photoshop soon (that is, with Lisa's help)!

Card Instructions
  1. Trim aqua mist cardstock into an A2 card.
  2. Trim patterned paper and tie ribbon into a knot.
  3. Adhere patterned paper to white cardstock, then adhere to card front.
  4. Stamp sentiment on label on patterned paper.
  5. Draw frame around card front with gel pen.
