Happy Birthday Clarice.....

First of all I want to say welcome to my new followers and also thank you to all of you who take the time to comment!  I really appreciate it.

Yesterday was my middle daughter's birthday and this is the first time that she has lived away from me for her big day.  She decided to stay in the town where she goes to college for the summer and really, I don't blame her as there is nothing to do in the town we live in!  She turned 20 and I wanted to commemorate her not being a teenager anymore with a more "elegant" looking birthday card.  I also plan to enter this card into two challenges....Retro Sketches #23 and also into Papertake's Weekly Challenge called "Die-ing for a  Punch" which is to use either dies or punches on your card.  I took two  photos of this card in order to get the right pic of the lovely blue color and then totally forgot to take a photo of the inside!  Which turned out very nice if I do say so myself.  All the dies are Spellbinders and the blue paper is Gina K. I think.....If you are ever looking for a quality card stock you need to try Gina K. luxury papers!  It is, hands down, the best card stock I have ever used.





Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Be well,
Sheila

Wowzer, Sheila! I had to take a quick minute to see what you've been up to before heading out on our next road trip. I've missed you all! And, am I glad that I did. What a super-elegant way to celebrate the new chapter of Clarice's life! So elegant and feminine. Thanks for the hint on the paper. Hope you are having a wonderful summer. See ya in a couple of weeks. I'm so missing my crafting, but you are sure making it happen!
