Birthdays are the Best


Yes, that is my television, in all its dusty glory! I was in a hurry and didn't want to take the time to set up my photo thingee, so I just popped the card down in front of the TV, since it matched the color scheme. :-) This is a birthday card that came together quickly for me. I tend to be very spontaneous in card making (the only area of my life I'd call spontaneous, LOL), so all I knew going in to it was that I wanted a black, white, and hot pink color combo. (This was because the recipient, after seeing another card I'd done with a black base and bright color accents said, "Now this I like." LOL! I teased her mercilessly that she meant that she hadn't liked any of the cards I'd made for her before, and made sure to make this year's birthday card to her specifications!) After pulling the papers, I saw these rhinestones in my bling drawer, and they matched Raspberry Fizz exactly--woo hoo! So then Blooming Button Bits came to mind . . . check and see if there's an appropriate birthday sentiment in there . . . yep! Good to go!

Paper: PTI--True Black, Raspberry Fizz, SS White, & Bitty Box; stash
