Birthday Chic

Monday, January 30, 2012


A special birthday card for a special Mom -- my mom!  She will be 78 years young on Tuesday, Jan. 31st.  We are 400 miles apart so I don't get to see her often, but we talk several times a week.  She is probably my closest friend.  I have been wanting to try out the Eiffel Tower die and her card seemed the perfect time to put it to use. The Eiffel Tower to me is a symbol of timelessness and classic beauty and my mom is also that to me.

I used the sketch from City Crafters this week and it just pulled everything together beautifully.



SPIES:
Stamps: Sentiment - Hero Arts.
Paper:  White cardstock; Silver shimmer cardstock; DP from stash;
Ink:  Cotton Candy.
Extras:  Eiffel Tower die cut and swirl die cut (My Favorite Things); beaded oval die cut (Spellbinders); scallop circle die (Spellbinders); emboss folder(Cuttlebug); corner punch; lace ribbon; craft pearl string; pink tulle; clear gems; pink flowers.

Happy Birthday, Mom!
