A Milestone Birthday Card

One of my coworkers celebrated her milestone birthday a few weeks ago.  I whipped up this Gorjuss Girl for her celebration.  A few of the details:

  • The young lady is Gorjuss Girl - Ladybird stamp.  Whe was colored with my Inktense pencils and fussy cut out.    This was back when I only owned 12 of these bad boys.  I'm telling you - they are worth it.  Especially now since I have 72 of them!
  • The papers are leavings from a previous project using KaiserCraft's Miss Empire collection.  I felt sorry for cutting up most of what was left then I asked myself - why?!  It works wonderfully here.
  • The flowers are all from the stash - more leavings from other projects.  The vellum flowers were colored with my Distress Markers on the backside and have prill centers.  The brown flower is a glassine paper flower.
  • The twigs and brown cardstock leaves were all cut from the backside of one of the coordinating papers.  
  • The inside was a simple sentiment I enhanced with a 40th die cut using some old Quickutz dies.  

I think my coworker enjoyed her celebration.  I know I am grateful for her and was happy to make something special to brighten her day.  I wish you some crafty goodness as these days of December start whizzing by.


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
