Makes Your Guts Grin!

 It's always fun to celebrate your birthday all weekend long but it's extra fun to celebrate it with a special group of girlfriends! And that is what my friend Chari did this past weekend as several ladies gathered for a little mini crafting retreat.  Saturday just happened to be her birthday so we celebrated all weekend long!  

This is the cute birthday card I made for her using Penny Black's Chocolate Moment and Cas-ual Friday's Sassy Smiles sentiment.

To make this card, I stamped the image on Neenah 110# cardstock and used my Copic markers for coloring.  I used the Gina Marie Designs Labels 6 for the decorative edge and then mounted it on a 6 x 6 card base covered in palm leaf paper.  I stamped the sentiment also on cardstock and cut in a fishtail pattern, then added a solid green 1/8" matting and angled it in the top left corner.  The white organza double bow at the top completed the card and it's ready to go with her present.

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.
