Today I have a quick birthday card to share with you. This past weekend we celebrated with a surprised birthday party for one of my aunts, she just turned 50. It was a lot of fun to see and get together with our family. Here is one of the cards that I made for her. The base of the card is from Core'dinations Black Magic Hocus Pocus paper pad and I lightly sanded the edges. For the mat I used a piece of designer paper from DCWV 8 x 8 The Sweet Stack with Glitter.I love this image of these ladies celebrating a birthday! The images is from Crafty Secrets Girlfriends Images & Journal Note. The sentiment is a quote from Lucille Ball--The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly and lie about your age. The image has a pink mat behind it and then I also added a couple of flourishes with rhinestones. The flourishes were made using the Floral Accent S4-199 die templates from Spellbinders™.I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Cupcake Party Stamp Set from Crafty Secrets on a tag. To create the tag I used the Fancy Tags S4-235 die template from Spellbinders™ and then I cut/embossed a second tag in black and layered the two tags. I also added a few rhinestones in the corners and on the tag and used 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES™ by 3L to add some dimension to the image and tag.
