Kraft Birthday Card

I have a lovely Christian friend who scrapbooks with us every month. She took some of my classes more than a dozen years ago and became totally addicted to papercrafting like me. For years she has been my prayer partner when life gave me challenges. I've always loved her sweet, cheerful spirit and wanted this card to be interesting to her.  Her birthday is tomorrow, so here's the card I made for her.

I used colors from the inspiration photo from Paper Craft Crew:

I used the right row down from this tic tac toe challenge:


I made this card extra lumpy with dimension because I was delivering it in person. In addition to the ink used to stamp the sentiment, I embossed the kraft front with hearts and inked them with white pigment ink. Additional dimension was added with the doily and the ribbon-tied gold edged vintage button from DL Art and the gold pearls. All of the patterned papers are new CTMH(Gimme Some Sugar checked) or retired (Live Beautifully, Whimsy Paper Fundamentals cricut flower). For Simon Says Stamp Wednesday sparkle and shine challenge, I added several touches of gold: the diagonal striped strip, heart clip, gold-edged button, gold-edged ribbon and gold pearls.

Thank you for visiting! May you be blessed as you bless others with your papercrafting!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
