Krafty Birthday Wishes

Woohoo! It's Wednesday! I'm not sure why I'm so excited about that, but I am. :) Maybe it's because I'm finally shipping orders from Dec. 31, which means I'll soon be able to do my year-end inventory and officially put 2009 behind me. Oh, and the 12+ hour days of non-stop shipping will be a nice thing to take a break from, too! ;)


Today's card uses a couple oldies but goodies from Verve. The flowers are from the Fancy Florals set and I stamped them directly on the Life Stories DP, cut them out, layered them and embellished with a pearl flower center from the Clear & Pearl Gem Collection by Making Memories. The sentiment is from the Wishful Elegance set and is embossed with Purely Pomegranate ink and detail clear embossing powder. I added a bit of lace trim {thanks Laurie!!} and did my usual trick of sponging everything in sight with Vintage Photo distress ink. I finished off with some paper piercing around the edges and liquid pearl accents on the scalloped circle.

Okay, that's a wrap. Now I'm headed back for another ride on the shipping train. :) See ya later!
