The Best Things in Life are Friends

I have another birthday card for you today. I started with a 5" X 7" white card base. I added a pink mat cut to 4 3/4" X 6 3/4". My hot pink mat was cut at 4 1/2" X 6 1/2" . I embossed all but the lower 1 3/4" with the Anna Griffin Smitten Embossing Folder. My patterned paper is from the My Minds Eye Memoriable 6" X 6" paper pad and was cut at 4 1/2" X 5". The pink polka dot piece is the reverse of the paisley print. I then added a thin strip of the pink mat to cover where where the two patterned papers meet. I don't have sizes because these two pieces were scraps left after I trimmed the papers for the card.

My sentiment is on a white mat cut at 2" X 3" and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The pink mat is cut at 2 1/4" X 3 1/4". I wrapped some bakers twine around the bottom of the sentiment and then tied a bow and adhered to the card with some foam tape. The Happy Birthday sentiment is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added some rhinestones to the card to finish it off.

Thanks for visiting.
