Special Day

My oldest daughter has a birthday coming up this month.  I won't say how old she's going to be; not that she'd care, but it will tell you how OLD I AM!  LOL!   Since she lives in California, it's hard to do gifts, so we mostly do gift cards.  But I want her to have something pretty, so I make her a special card.  I'm submitting this one to the Twisted Tuesday challenge this week which was to make a card for someone you love and the twist was to use lots of color.  You can find them HERE.  I think this one qualifies on both counts.

The layout was based on one of Bev Rochester's layouts.  I twisted up her layout just a little bit. 

Materials Used:
  • Image - I have no idea where I got this stamp.  It wasn't very long ago, but I've looked through all my receipts and can't find it listed anywhere, so if someone recognizes it, please let me know.
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Happiest Birthday Wishes
  • Cardstock - Gina K 120# for the card base; Stampin Up - Cajun Craze and Summer Sun
  • Paper - Basic Gray - Marrakech
  • Flowers, Brad, metal circle - stash.
  • Border Punch - Martha Stewart
  • Copic Markers - B0000; B21, B34, B41; C00, C0, C1, C3, C5, C7; E000, E00, E11, E21, E23, E57; R00, R05; Y11, Y13, Y17, Y18; Y32, Y35; 0
Well, that's it.  I sure hope she likes it.

I am also submitting this card for the following challenges:

Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes

No Matter Which Challenges - Die Cuts and/or Punches
