Birthday Wishes

I'm horrible with on-time birthday wishes. Absolutely horrible. Don't get me wrong - it's not because I don't love my friends, just always late. This year I vowed to be on time... so I've had my cards made a month ahead of time, sometimes even more. But that doesn't mean the card gets sent on time... I pretty much gave up with the summer months (sorry guys) and I figured I'd just start over with the fall birthdays.

I've used this layout before and it's fun to create the taller layouts. For this card, I wanted to not use a white base and use white as my accent color. Just a different twist to the usual. I embossed the roses in white and then sponged some white ink in the flower centers.

Happy Birthday W! May you have a fabulous one!

I am the worst when it comes to actually mailing something out Belinda. The WORST. It's a terribly bad habit and I need to break myself of it.
These flowers really stand out in white and make this card a showstopepr. Love it.

I think we cardmakers are uniformly awful about sending cards in a timely fashion.

This card is absolutely gorgeous. I love the effect you achieved by sponging white onto the flower.
