Some Birthday Wishes

I used Lauren's Saturday Sketch #2; this one was easier for me than the previous one. I used Really Rust, Night of Navy, Always Artichoke, PTI Kraft, and dp from Basic Grey Boxer. The main image is from SU! Office Accoutrement and the sentiment from PTI Mixed Messages. And, the background image is from Cornish Heritage Farms.

I'll be using this card for either my mother or my aunt, who share birthdays on September 16th. I am not that close with my mother, but recently, steps in the right direction have been taken. I am hoping that our relationship can be repaired.

This is just wonderful, Tina!!! Love the color combo, the stamps, the Office Accoutrement image ... everything!

Is that SU stamp still available, dormant, or retired?!? LOL, you need a score card to keep it all straight, huh?!?

Great card, Kiddo!

~Hugs, Deb

Excellent card! I really like how you paired it with the Cornish note pad back ground stamp!

Its sad that your not close with your mom, I hope the two of you can work things out!

What a stunning card and I love your color combo!
Either your mom or aunt will love this beautiful card.
I don't know you that well Tina, but I truly hope that you and your mom repair your relationship. Just take it one day at a time:)
BTW...your mom "bd" and mine are very close. Mine is Sept.15th!!! Us Virgos appear to be mean, but deep down we are very loveable people:)
