Your Special Day

Thank you for visiting today, Mindy here sharing a card that makes me smile every time I see it. I was contemplating what type of card I wanted to make, and found this rectangle of heavy chipboard in my stash of supplies from my early scrap-booking days. (I have so many supplies filed away for safekeeping!)

I started this card by stamping the Mums from JustRite Stamps image on my chip board rectangle, and then colored it in with my Tim Holtz Distressed markers. The rectangle needed a little more zip and pizzaz, so I die cut two strips of the Woodland Border die from Poppystamps and adhered one to each side of the chip board rectangle. Before adding the rectangle to the card front, I wrapped a length of crinkle ribbon around the card base, then tied a double loop bow to adhere to the side.

To complete my card, I added a few Cherry Chocolate Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest on the corners for a little more texture, and layer of interest. I also stamped one of the sentiments from the Mum Stamp Set to the image.

I hope you are having a great week, and will join in our Classy Card Weekly Challenge this week. We always love to see what you create with our products.
