Embossed birthday sketch

Have you ever visited Jen's blog? She's always got a SFYTT (sketch for you to try), and I love them! This was from waaaaay back in December, but I keep my sketch notebook handy and always thumb through it before making a card.

It is PTI Ocean Tides cs, grosgrain ribbon, polka dot pp, and some yummy white velvet ribbon (had for ages). I stamped the CTMH flower in CTMH White Daisy craft ink, double embossed with white embossing powder. So, lots of good texture since I didn't pull out my cuttlebug for this card.

This is for my mom's birthday on Saturday. Yes, THIS Saturday. America's Independence day. Since my mom was born on the 4th of July, she thought the entire country celebrated her birthday growing up. Hence, we sorta grew up with a skewed version of how birthday's should be celebrated. I, personally, have a Birthday Extravaganza that lasts all week long (too bad for my dear hubby who's birthday is 2 days after mine! haha).

Enjoy!

Great card Kristin!

Welcome to the group! I look forward to getting to know you better!

Poor DH - he only gets a day for his birthday....but I think all girls should have a week long celebration for their birthday!

I love the simplicity of this sketch. Keeping sketches in a notebook, hmmmm, that's what I thought little scraps of paper were for? LOL!
