Birthday Blessings

Good Afternoon!  I'm just dashing out to celebrate my Mom's 87th birthday today.....we are hosting a Champagne Party this afternoon for her and her gal pals, aka, my Crazy Aunties.  They're pretty cool gals!

This card will be entered into the Challenges at; Stamp TV Kit Addicts, Shine And Sparkle, Stamp TV MIUM, This Or That, Simon Says Monday, It's A Frame UpSimon Says Wendesday, Going Dotty, Penny Black, Color Inspiration Photo and Stamping Sensations, Butterflies, Fairies, and Fantasy.

I pulled from the colors.
 
 
 
I used the Stamp TV Kit, Shabby Spring by Gina K Designs.  Images stamped in Raven Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  My background was created by foiling Toner Paper with Hot Pink Foil and then adding texture with a Lattice Embossing Folder.  
 
 
 
 
 
PTI Shakers And Sprinkles dies for my frame.  Sentiment heat embossed with Pink Powder.  Nuvo Crystal drops in Carnation Pink and Morning Dew--which dry clear and I looooooove!  Sakura Glitter Pen and WOS Clear Glitter for some extra sparkle and shine.
 
Thanks so much for popping by......off to start the Champagne Toasts!
 
Enjoy~~

  9. Oh, my! This is so gorgeous with the pink colors and the foil you used. And, a great embossing folder too. I like that you added those Crystal Drops as well as they really add a lot to the design. I hope to get some of the pink foil next order but it seems the foiling stuff is flying off the shop these days.

  11. Beautiful card, Donna! Lovely drama in the background, and gorgeousness in the butterfly!

    How nice to be a big part of your mom's life and that of her friends. I miss my mom. She has been gone 25 years in a few months (can you tell I still miss her? LOL) I love the stories gained from the older generations, and just being with family and close friends in that way. Hope your champagne Party was a complete success! May you enjoy many more years with your mom, Donna. huggers, de
