Birthday sparkle

Our life has been turned upside down again and again lately - my father-in-law had very risk emergency surgery Friday night so we were gone for the weekend again. Between the full-time working, homework duty in the evening, and all the family emergencies, stamping time has been very hard to come by. And when I do have a moment or two, I can't seem to get my groove going. *sigh*

But tonight I grabbed a few moments and was able to sit down and stamp something! Ah, that felt good! I made this quick birthday card with my favorite color combo - pink and brown. You probably can't tell in the photo, but I did some highlighting with dazzling diamonds to add a little sparkle. I thought the eyelet border punch played up the stamped image with the scallops and dots nicely!

Thanks for stopping by!!

sorry for your recent family issues, but love seeing your clean simple style- you inspire me for a lot of my workshops- to keep it basic but still get a wow
