Let's Celebrate!!!

This week my BFF celebrated her 40th Birthday (let's call her EDNA), however the party is not until tonight, so I'm scheduling this for when I plan to be walking in the door so she doesn't see it beforehand!  :)  Now I seriously thought about doing and elegant grown up sort of card, I mean we have known each other for more than 20yrs, but I decided against it, 'cause she loves these a la mode stamps by My Favorite Things and she also is really good at doing different shaped/folded cards - so I went down that path instead.  I sure hope she likes it!!!

I created my Side Stair Step card out of Very Vanilla.  Then I stamped my Time to Celebrate a la mode from MFT in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E000, E01, E51, E53, R83, R85, R89, B91, B93, B95, B97, R22, R24, E13, E17, E19, W1, W3).  I used the Mega Long Rectangle Nestabilities to cut and matt it.  I used some Modern Homemaker DP for the horizontal panels ('cause I know she loves this paper too) and created a little rose garden out of the MS Arch Lattice punch and some ZVA roses.  For the sentiment panel I used the JustRite Birthday Celebrations set and coloured with R81, R83, R85, R89 (to match the cake) and cut it out with scissors.  I finished by adding a few pearl swirls.

Stamps - Time to Celebrate (MFT), Birthday Celebrations (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, October Afternoon Modern Homemaker DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Mega Long Rectangle and Mega Long Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities, MS Arch Lattice Punch, ZVA Roses, ZVA Pearls.

That's all from me today, feel free to hop over to Edna's blog and leave her a little Birthday Love and thanks for visiting!!  :)

LOL, thanks for my morning smile, Kathy. Let's call her Edna, love it :) I also giggle when I see her name because the kids and I just watched the Incredibles again last weekend and I just love Edna in that show. I'm sure she will love the card. Enjoy celebrating with her :)
