Celebrate Amazing You

Hello there!  Are you looking for a sketch for those last minute cards?  The Pals Paper Arts have a great sketch this week that is just perfect for any occasion.  Head on over to the PALS to link up your creation for a chance to be a PALS pick!

Are you knee deep in Holiday preparations?  I know we are, but I needed to take a moment to celebrate my cousin Catherine's Birthday, or Birthmas as we call it.  I love this pattern paper from the Pretty Petals dsp stack, it's so pretty and feminine!  Gold foil paper and venetian crochet trim really compliment the paper so well.

Gold heat embossing?  Yes please!  I used the oval framelits to make a raised layer, then stamped and heat embossed on the very vanilla card base.  Simply elegant!

The pops of color on the black are fun, and the shiny gold is just lovely!  This is somewhat of an CAS card, but if you pick the right elements, they are stunningly beautiful!

So if you know someone that has a December birthday, and you can take it from me, since I do, It is nice to be remembered during the hectic holiday season.  Take a moment to send a card or a phone call, it will be appreciated!  Happy Birthmas Catherine!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
