April is a busy month for our family as far as birthday and anniversary celebrations. We just added another anniversary when my youngest brother got married the beginning of April. And, to add to those celebrations, we have Easter coming up!
However, there is one birthday that is very special to me, my sister's birthday. I have 4 siblings of which 3 are brothers, and only one sister. We have never lived closer than 4 hours from each other since I married and moved away.
Now that we are older and our daughters are married and gone, we try to spend more time together. Twice a year we get together for a weekend scrapping crop. Those are the best of times! The time goes quickly and it all comes to an end too soon for both of us. I give extra special attention to making her birthday card because I want it to be just perfect! I used the new Prima Madeline Collection for her card. The vintage papers and colors are just beautiful! Other supplies include a Prima Roseprint Birdsong/Bird, Prima French White Roses, Prima Pearl Stickpin, Prima Pink Jewel Flourish, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Stickles-Aqua, Lime Green, Worn Lipstick Distress, Cinnamon and Diamond, Ranger Distress Ink-Worn Lipstick, Colorbox-Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink, Tattered Angels Passion Red Glimmer Mist, Spellbinder's Nested Hearts and Fancy Tag and Foliage Dies, Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, and a Stampin' Up Sentiment.
The Prima French White Mulberry Rose was sprayed with Passion Red Glimmer Mist.
I inked the lace trim with Ranger Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.
The edges of the Spellbinder Heart, Foliage, and Fancy Tag have Cinnamon Stickles added to them.
I also added Aqua and Worn Lipstick Stickles to the Prima Roseprint Bird.
The top edge of the card along with the scallop punched border have Cinnamon Stickles.
The card from several different angles. I am pleased with the results of my labor of love!
All linked products are available in the CropStop Store. Other similar manufacturer products are available also that are not linked.
