A very special happy birthday

Thirty years ago today I was blessed with the birth of my daughter Jennifer.  I always love creating cards, but they have even more meaning when they go to someone so special. 

Jen's card was created using Pretty in Pink cardstock that was embellished with some Log Cabin Smooch Spritz.  To this I added a strip of Spice Cake Designer Fabric for my bow, and the Birthday Wishes were centered in a Die Cut Designer Frame that I altered a bit by tearing the edges.   I sponged a touch of Soft Suede ink around the frame and added some butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.

Since I don't very rarely sew, but really love the fabric Stampin' Up! offers, I like using it for my bows.  It is really soft, ties easily, and coordinates with the Designer Series Paper.  So, if you are like me and don't sew, don't be afraid to try the fabric.  It really adds a nice touch to your cards or projects.

The following were used:
