Happy 70th Birthday Dad

Today I have a special BIRTHDAY card to share with you.  This month is my Dad's 70th birthday.  I wanted to make a really special card.  I picked a few challenges to play along with and went about creating the card.  I would never have put these colors together.  That's why I love playing along with card challenges.  I think this color combo works nicely.  When I started pulling out my paper I wasn't sure this was going to work.  It did work.

The layout for this card comes from this week's Case This Sketch Sketch:


The color palette comes from this week's Colour Q:  (I used black as my neutral)


I'm including it in the Seize the Birthday and CAS*ology birthday challenges

Happy New Year 2015 - Virginia's View Challenge # 11

Happy New Year 2015!!!

Today I have two cards to share with you. Both cards are for the Virginia's View Challenge # 11 Clean Slate.  You can find the challenge linked to the photo at the bottom of the page if you'd like to play along.

The layout for this card was inspired by a card I designed a couple years ago (Deepest Sympathy).   I changed it up by making it white on white, took out some butterflies, added pearls, and used a Happy Anniversary sentiment.

I also did a sympathy version of this card.  The only difference is there are a few extra butterflies and the sentiment is for sympathy.

While I don't make "resolutions" at the new year I have made a couple "goals".  The difference I see between resolutions and goals is having a plan to get to the goal.  My biggest goal for 2015 is to send out more cards to my family and friends.  This will require planning in advance.  I've already designed some cards and picked up some stamps for January birthdays so I have a good start on my goal.


Stamps:  Hero Arts Sentiments
Paper:  PTI White
Ink:  Versa Mark
Accessories: Silver embossing powder, Beautiful Wings Embosslit (SU), Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder (SU), White Basic Pearls (SU)
Techniques: Embossing

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card today!  I hope 2015 will be a Happy and Healthy year for you and your family.
