Fabulous Day..

Hello! Welcome back! :)

Today's card is near to my heart. It's for my stepmother. She and my Dad have been married for almost 30 years! She is SUCH an awesome person and has always been like a second mom to me. Her birthday is next week and the papers and colors I chose remind me of her. She is a real class act for sure.

I used Mercy's sketch from this week, seen here:



This sketch is really very user friendly and can be used for SO many different papers and types of cards, right? You should play along!  Here is my card: 


Those papers are from a pack that my mom found at a yard sale recently. They had "tons", but she only bought one?!?!? Um, thanks mom! LOL There really are pretty colors in this paper,don't you think?  I wonder where I can find more? I believe it was K & Co. paper. Hmm..might have to Google that! Anywho, that's all for me today. Hope you have a great one! Laters...




Stamps: Signature Greetings (papertrey); Holiday Labels 14 (Waltzingmouse); Birthday Bash (Verve)
Card Stock: Linen (papertrey); Certainly Celery, Soft Suede (stampin up); K & Co pp (yard sale..lol)
Ink: Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap
Extras: "Mesh" Cuttlebug folder; Linen grosgrain (papertrey); Bling from want2scrap; Labels 14
