Happy Birthday Janice!

Janice turned 29 (again) on Saturday.  It seems like yesterday that I was bringing her home from the hospital!  She did not want a fuss made but I did make her a card:

The inside:

 I came across this blog post and immediately fell in love with this card:  
Diana also did a tutorial for this technique which can be found here.

I used a Just Rite stamp for my card and used my nesties in my cuttlebug to cut and emboss it. I also used a Stampin Up Embossing folder in my cuttlebug for the faux metal tin ceiling technique and cut the squares with a punch. The tulips were coloured with Prismacolour pencils.  The card base is red and I thought the black and pink made a nice contrast.  I stamped the inside sentiments and then cut and embossed them in my cuttlebug as well.  The butterfly was cut with a Martha Stewart punch (love her punches!).  I was quite pleased with how this card turned out.

Here are some pics of my beautiful daughter:


Looking Good!

The 1st picture was taken last Christmas and the 2nd picture was taken a year ago.  She is expecting her 3rd child in November and I'm sure she would kill me if I posted a picture of her baby bump!
Thanks for stopping by!
