I haven’t bought a birthday card in almost 6 years…Wow! I’m coming up on six years as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator next month! Okay, except for that one time at band camp when I…But, really time really does fly. I thought I would get some birthday cards made before the day actually shows up and I am cardless, again. Why is it that we can make cards whenever we want but those birthday cards are the last ones that get made, usually right before the big day. Well, now that I’m a long way off from family, I’ve got to plan ahead.
Being my almost Stampin’ UP! birthday, I thought something new was in order. This card was made for the Mojo Monday 182 Challenge. It actually started out as a masculine card, but I ended up adding a pearl to the tag. I think it now makes this a lady card. What do you think about pearls and guys….hmmm, maybe I can find a bit of scrap metal and add it instead. *smile*
Everything was sponged with Soft Suede and spritzed with the Spritzer Tool using the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker. The Concord Crush Ribbon had white bands on the end and those were sponged to better blend with the card.
