Happy Birthday Jen!

Hiya! It's the weekend - and i'm so relieved! It has been a hard slog this week and this weekend is extra special because my hubby has the weekend off - which is quite rare! We have lots planned, including going to our friend Jen's birthday party this evening in Putney.

Last week i went to our monthly training at my upline Cates house. We always do our business talk and then have a crafty play with some of the newest Stampin' Up! products. I made this card with Jen in mind and plan to give to her this evening:

We started with a 'Melon Mambo' cardbase and i randomly stamped a stamp from the 'Delicate Doilies' in some 'Melon Mambo' ink. Next i layered some 'Flirtatious DSP' onto some 'Whisper White. Next we ran some 'Melon Mambo' cardstock through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Perfect Pennant Die'. We stamped about stamp from the 'Delicate Doilies' stampset, using 'Wisteria Wonder' ink and punched it out using the '1-3/4" Circle Punch'. We layered it all up and placed a 'Designer Button' in the centre, blinged up with a 'Basic Rhinestone'.

The sentiment is from 'Teeny Tiny Wishes', stamped onto some 'Whisper White', punched out using the 'Word Window Punch' and then layered onto a 'Pretty in Pink' 'Modern Label'. I added a few extra 'Basic Rhinestones' to finish off the card.

The great thing about creating homemade cards is that you can create cards that a perfect for the recipients - that totally reflects their personality - this card is bright, fun and blingy so i really hope that Jen likes it!
