Happy Birthday!

Card for a special friend, created to meet these challenges: Charisma Cardz (sketch challenge), Theme Thursday (use borders), Finally Friday (use your favourite stamp and favourite colour combination), Saturday Surprise (in the round), Secret Crafter (make an easel card), Alphabet Challenge ("D" is for decoupage), Creative Card Crew wants to see ribbons and gems, Finally Friday wants us to create a scalloped border the old fashioned way...with punched circles.

So here's my card. I used my all time favourite sentiment stamp ("I treasure your friendship") on the inside of my card, with a favourite colour combination (celeron green with pink and white). I decoupaged some flowers on the floral wreath stamp from Impression Obsession. The Happy Birthday stamp is from Stamping Bella.


This is the easel, opened.


On the inside, I kept it deliberately plain, because it's busy enough on the outside. I really LOVE this Stampabilities sentiment stamp. I use it more often than any others I own.


This is a close-up of the dimension.


Oh, by the way...If you'd like to include your OWN wreath card in the challenge, go on over to the Impression Obsession blog...if you use only IO stamps, you could win a $25.00 gift certificate!

Thank you so much for visiting today! I'll stop by your blog too.
