Week of Celebrations

This past week has surely gone by so quickly.  It's had its ups and downs, but let's concentrate of the ups!  We celebrated my father's birthday on Tuesday and then a dear friend took me out for a belated birthday lunch on Thursday.  Yesterday, we attended a housewarming party for another friend's daughter.  Today, we are celebrating a friend's parents 50th wedding anniversary which brings me to the card I made for the occasion.

The papers and banner are from Melissa Frances' C'est la Vie collection and were inked around the edges in brown.  The frame, from Recollections, was painted white, coated in glitter and highlighted with pearls.  The tiny roses were given a touch of Diamond Stickles.  The butterflies were punched from one of the pattern papers with a Martha Stewart punch.  All pearls are also from Recollections.  The gold stickers are MME.

Well, I need to get ready for the next celebration.  And then I need to get the diet back on track!  Have a wonderful week and thanks for taking the time to stop by.

*It's been awhile since I entered any challenges, but I think I will submit this card to the current "Celebrate" challenge at The Shabby Tearoom.

**Just popping in again to let you know that Linda at SWG Original Designs is sharing Blogversary Candy.  You have until August 31, 2014, to take part in the giveaway.  She makes the most beautiful cards!

  8. Hi, Patty! To answer your question about the multiliner it's a copic marker 0.3 that I use. It fills in if stamp doesn't completely stamp, to draw, or to add like I did on my flower for more definition. In fact, Jo-Ann Fabric online has them on sale right now!:-)Have a great weekend!
