Celebrating Your (29th) Birthday

celebratingbirthday

Good morning!  Today’s totally girlie girlie card was inspired by this week’s Shabby Tea Room photo below.  Oh, I just HAD to play.  My new lace trim was the perfect touch along with some pink seam binding and my last scrap of grey wood paper.  I figure this card would be good to give any friend over the age of 30 {wink!}.

I am loving the wood plank ceiling and chandelier…

Now I really wanted to use this frame die, but wanted some kind of flourish on the top and bottom.  The coordinating stamp was perfect except it was too small for the sentiment I just HAD to use (period!).  So I masked off the frame die so the ends of the stamp would not show…that’s washi tape I’m using so it would peel off easily..

Such a beauty. Pink and gray is a favorite color combo along with pink and green. Takes me back to my preppy days (and a lot of times I'm really don't think I ever left them :)). And...love how you masked the frame. I bought some of the Eclipse masking tape...love it!!
