August Birthday

My mother-in-law's birthday was just last week, so it was time to create. :)  She seems to really enjoy the cards I make, so I try to make them special for her.

While the image isn't from Your Next Stamp, the inspiration for the card came from their sketch challenge.  I love that their challenges are up for a whole month.  Lately, it seems that I don't get time to create until the end of the month.

I wanted a classy, light feel to the card, so I used the dandelions stamp and the great floral square die.  The background of the image layer is colored with Copics.

The green background paper is embossed with a dandelion embossing folder.  I think it really added to the feel of the card.

Hopefully, I'll get the opportunity to create a few more cards for the challenge. The last Friday of the month is this week, so I want to enjoy the challenge as much as I can while it lasts. :)

Have a beautiful Tuesday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.



  1. Very classy card! Thank you for joining us for our YNS August Challenge!

  2. Another pretty one! The die cut adds such a soft layer that gives the card movement. You are just a crafting machine - so glad the sketch inspired you and you played along at YNS :>)


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment on my creations. I pray that the Lord blesses you in many ways today!!!
