Hello friends. Playing along with Ashley and the Make it Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink, where Ashley shows us her beautiful invitation for her daughters first birthday. I've got SO many ideas swimming through my head right now for when my granddaughter turns one, but since she's only 4 months old right now (and I don't want to rush any of this precious first year!), I came up with a card that I'll use for either my mom's birthday or Mother's Day. I used mainly stamps, dies, and papers from the Beautiful Brushstrokes set...here's what I came up with:
I used the Filigree Border Die on the front (and inside), and also embossed a little bit of the edges with silver embossing powder. The tag on the front is from the Cuppa Love dies, and the sentiment on the tag is from Fillable Frames #9 (all PTI). I also used one of the dots from Polka Dot Basics on the front and also the gift card holder (PTI die). Kind of hard to tell in the photo, but I embossed the flower outlines on the gift card holder with white embossing powder to make them "pop" a bit more. The tag on the gift card holder is from the "Tiny Tags" die and stamp set. I left the die cut in the middle panel un-stamped, as I'm not sure if it's going to be a birthday or Mother's Day card yet. I also added some silver sequins to the front and inside to dress it up just a bit more. This really was a fun card to make and I just kept adding things as I went along...I think my mom will really like it!

And because I just can't seem to get enough of this little girl, I'll leave you with the latest photo of my granddaughter Addy:
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :0)
