I Never Thought I'd Get Old!

This past weekend one of my older lady friends celebrated her birthday while we were away on our crafting retreat.  She used to own and manage a very successful catering business, so Stamping Bella's Curvy Girl Baker was the perfect image for her birthday card. 

 After stamping the image on Neenah 110# cardstock, I used Copic markers for coloring.  The Gina Marie Drop Pendant die worked well for the tall image and allowed space for adding the humorous birthday greeting stamp that I added.  Her favorite color combo is red and black, so I covered the A2 card base with red and white polka dotted paper before securing the colored image in the center. The black organza bow completed the card design before filling it with birthday wishes from all those attending the retreat!

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  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.
