Happy Birthday

My Mother-in-Law asked me to make some birthday cards for her, so I've been on a bit of a Birthday card kick.  I try to have a good variety of cards on hand, but most of my birthday cards are geared towards the younger generations. 

I love the contrast between the black and white and the softer colors on this card.  I used a Swiss Dot embossing folder to give some subtle texture behind the stitched frames, which are stacked 4 layers high for added dimension. 

I love the nice variety of scripty greetings in this sentiment set from Simon Says Stamp.  I'm pretty sure it's Kristina Werner's handwriting, which is my favorite. 

I finished off the card by tucking some bakers twine sprigs behind each cluster of flowers and adding some scattered sequins. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I hope you enjoyed today's card.  I've included a list of the supplies I used below.
