Yes, today is another birthday for me. I don't mind getting older (who is getting younger?). I one time saw a quote on Pinterest to the effect of not regretting that you are getting older because it is a privilege denied to many. How true. Last evening, I was treated to dinner by my son. Today, I was treated to lunch by my husband. I am sufficiently stuffed. We will be having cake and ice cream later on. Will be eating lightly the rest of the week! I do like birthdays that last more than one day!
Today, I have a little gift card holder to share. The design was centered around the pretty yellow and gray Webster's Pages cameo. The envelope was cut on my beloved Big Kick using a Tim Holtz pocket envelope die. The paper used for the envelope is Tim Holtz and the pattern paper is MME. I stamped some text from 7 Gypsies onto the striped paper. A bit of ruffled lace was glued around the bottom. The flowers are Recollections toned down a bit with Sand Glimmer Mist. I added some Liquid Pearls around the scallop circle.
The green pine branches were made with a Martha Stewart punch.
Foam dots were placed under the scallop circle for dimension.
On the back of the envelope, I attached two brads and a bit of twine to form a closure. There is a little bit of space here where you could add a sentiment tag.
We are having absolutely gorgeous weather today. Perfect day for celebrating! Have a wonderful week!
