Happy Birthday

Happy day to you! It’s Saturday and the weather people are stating that we are going to have record highs for December in Connecticut. WHAT? We generally see some snow by now but my husband (SO very excited there is no snow) is still golfing. Yes there are still some golf courses still open for business. I mean how often would you see anyone golfing in 60 degree weather in December in Connecticut? Once in a blue moon. Ha!  I’ll take it and let him be happy this winter instead of the normal winter blues and I will keep crafting. 

Speaking of, I’m still playing with some new goodies from the preorder. Please do not share this post with my baby sister who is turning 21 later on this month! (insert bugged eyed mouth open saying “WHAT?”) Yes, I’m officially old! So I decided to make her a special card for the occasion. She always gets a handmade card from me but this is big! She is now going to be able to drink in public with all of us (the siblings) now. There is no reason to leave her out and be the designated driver (DD). Now we will have to select someone else to be the DD.

I choose to stick with her favorite color teal. Since Stampin’ Up! no longer carries Taken with Teal (I know I miss that color too!) I chose to stay as close as I could to the color with Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. Hope she will like it. How could she not there is lots of sparkly goodness on this card.

Here is a closer view of the different textures and elements on this card that you might have missed seeing in the full picture. The Pool Party Glitter Ribbon is so fun and coordinates well with the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper. Do you see the the Flur de lis (ish) image in the background (look to your left). I had stamped off to have it leave subtle hints of the image. I like how this turned out and hope that my sister does too.  

I used the sketch from Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch (#PCCCS173).

Thank you for stopping by today and let's get outside to enjoy the December air and heat while it's here. Will I see you tomorrow same time same place? Great it's a date! Enjoy your day.
