It’s my last birthday of this month…but it’s really a special one. I have been friends with Bonnie for more than 20 years and we have been through many “life” moments together. She and her husband took ballroom dancing a few years ago and got so good at it they began teaching themselves and traveling to competitions. So this card is a nod to the beautiful dresses she wears when they travel for competitions and her very special birthday.
Here’s the card front…
She loves to dress up in black so I chose that color combo for her. Here’s the inside of the card…
Is that not an adorable dress? Those silk flowers are no longer available, but I hoarded a couple of packs for occasions just like this. I know she will love this pop up card.
Tomorrow I’ll show you the gift I made to go along with this card, so be sure to tune in.
Here’s the supplies used:
- Stamps: Chalk Talk, Blooming With Kindness (sentiment)
- Paper: Very Vanilla cardstock, Modern Medley DSP
- Ink: Black
- Tools: Oval Framelits, Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts, Dress Form Pop ‘n Cuts, Beautiful Baroque Embossing Folder, Bird Builder Punch (leaves, stems), Scallop Circle Punch (flowers)
- Embellishments: Pearls (necklace), silk flowers (retired, sigh!)
Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.”
Lots of “Life” happens while I’m busy in my studio getting my fingers inky…and I’m fine with that.
