Happy Birthday

A few weeks ago my sweet blog friend Lynette emailed me to let me know one of our other blog friends Kelly Marie's birthday was coming up. This is actually on of the first cards I've ever made for another card maker, and can I just say the pressure was on!

I decided that I would summon my "Kelly Marie" style. Kelly Marie creates some of the best scenes. And they are always so cute. I decided to create my own little cloud scene, but as I don't have any cloud stamps that was a problem. I started with some white cardstock, and drew some cute fluffy clouds.

Once I got them cut out I stitched my border and arranged the clouds on my card.

I decided I needed to add a little something to my clouds. I placed the cloud straight into my versamark and embossed the whole cloud with clear embossing powder.


My only stamping on this card was a sentiment from Vintage Picnic Sentiments and an American Crafts frame! Hopefully Kelly Marie will like it! Happy Birthday!
