Sister Birthday Card

 This card is for a very special lady that really is not my sister in the blood sense but my sister in every other way.  She is one of my very best friends and I love her more than I could possibly love her if she were blood.  I hope she likes this little showing of my feelings towards her for her birthday.

I first found the sketch from Sketch N Stash and then chose my stamp.  I love this cutie from Bildmalarna holding the heart.  I crop with a couple ladies each week and we had a challenge where each lady brought something that had to be used on our creation.  One lady brought a button, one flowers and one a little paper pad where we had to use two different patterned papers.  The small cream flower is the one I used from the lady.  I actually had three of them but they disappeared off my desk one at a time.  My grandson and I searched everywhere for them.  I just could not figure out where they went.  Well as I was starting to work on said project, Charlie, my pain in the behind cat, jumped up and grabbed my last little cream flower and ran off.  I chased him down and rescued the poor flower.  I can almost bet where the other two are now!  Anyway, due to missing items, I had to dig thru my punches until I found the closest I had and punched me out a few more flowers.  Dug through some more old stash until I found some golden rhinestones for the centers.  Now on to pick the papers.  I just laid my image on each paper in the pad and found the ones I thought she looked best on and used those two. The lace border is a die from Magnolia and the sentiment is a stamp and die from Whimsy.  The ribbon was a small piece of leftover at the bottom of my ribbon bag. The greenery is a MS punch.  Stitching, inking and a little stickles and I called it done.

Thank you all for stopping by.  May God watch over you and keep you safe.
