Birthday card

Hello sweet peeps,

Here is my card to show you for today. I have used two different kinds of fancy gift wrap and washi tape. I was really happy with this card and then something happened when I was sticking the embroidery yarn. I tried being extra creative with it and tried to cover it up with the red and black card stock with a sentiment (from Penny Black) on it.  I feel this card is quite non-descript considering I started out fairly well with the papers. I am also realizing that buying lots of fancy gift wrap is not so economical an option - it is like penny wise and pound foolish... lol. However I cannot deny my love affair with gift wrap - there is something so delightful about it that it becomes hard to resist. Lol.



I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Will come and visit your blogs now.
Love,
Monica

Hi Monica, you are right, there is something delightful about this card; love the designs and how cute the buttons and thread goes together with the background - very clever. Your painting of the yellow flowers is beautiful; love that background paper too - it is brilliant with the flowers; like they are on a trellis. Your heart is LOVELY - not lonely at all; love the little daisies around it and the embossed piece - really gorgeous. You really have a knack at creating different and unique cards giving them a life of their own as they stand out and embrace the viewer. You're so talented, my dear friend. I hope you and your lovely family are doing well.
