My mom, my grandma (may she rest in peace) and I (along with a host of aunts and cousins) all have September birthdays. I've always loved my September birthday and it is just that much more special because I share this month with my mom and her mom.
Don't you just love these colors! I do!! So fall-ish and feminine. The layout for this card was CASE'd from one I saw in a recent Paper Crafts magazine. I love it when I can start with a "recipe" and then just add my own "ingredients" and "spice". lol
The ribbon really is gray and matches quite well with the paper, even though it doesn't look like it here in this photograph. I cut a tiny felt flower from PTI's Beautiful Blooms die and topped it with a brad from My Mind's Eye (Blackbird collection). I could have (and probably should have) purchased every single item in this MME collection but I showed some restraint especially since I remembered all the other items at home in my craft room that I thought I absolutely had to have. Must use those first with just a sprinkling of some newer stuff. Right?
Here's the inside of the card. I combine some sentiments from Big and Bold Wishes along with Birthday Basics. It makes it so easy when I can place all the sentiments on one big block and stamp them all together. Much less messing up!
Thanks for stopping by!
