Happy Birthday to My SIL!



My SIL is a graphic artist. Not just a graphic artist, but a GREAT graphic artist . . . so I wanted her card to be special. With a milestone birthday, I had to break out PTI's numbers dies and glitter them up--you'll see more cards using them soon since they are so fun to work with! The paper choices came from the folder I keep large patterned paper scraps in. The colors didn't photograph true--I tried to tweek them, but that's not my strong point. :-) They actually blend nicely in person, and the ribbon isn't so blue, but more greenish IRL too. Oh, and the flowered paper is sparkly. Now that I've told you what you didn't see, here's what you did, LOL!:

Supplies
Stamps: PTI--Big Birthday Wishes, Mehndi Medallion
Paper: PTI--Rustic White, Ripe Avocado, Hawaiian Shores, Green Boutique; DCWV--Linen Closet
Ink: Memento--Tuxedo Black; Watermark; Versacolor--Bamboo; E.P.--Filigree Clear, Stamp Diego Ultra Detail White
Misc.: Dies--PTI Numbers and Edgers #1; Seam Binding--Etsy; Rose--Prima (thanks to Lorraine!); Decorative Scissors--Fiskars; Glitter--Filigree; Rhinestones--Recollections; Corner Chomper
