Let's Celebrate YOU!

Happy Monday!  I'd like to share a very special birthday card I was recently commissioned to make.  My friend's granddaughter was turning 10, and like many kids right now, wasn't able to have her Birthday Celebration due to the virus.

When I asked what her granddaughter liked, this proud grandma had a long list of many interests and talents to describe her.
Thus the card grew, and grew, and grew! 

Here's the front, using Unity Stamps' Phyllis Harris image Eyes Closed-See Clearly, with a stitched scalloped wavy die and dark green insert as the focus.

As you might can tell the card is LARGE.  

Ready for the inside?

I made a coordinating pocket on the inside to hold ALL the things she wanted to celebrate with her granddaughter.  Each image in the pocket is made into a book marker for my friend to write a special message to the birthday girl!  

Now THAT is a birthday card full of wishes and love!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards and other crafting items.

I’ll be entering this card in the following challenges:
