Driving by with a Birthday Hi!

Melissa over at Tuesday Morning Sketches has a special month long challenge.

Melissa's sister is a breast cancer survivor and it's her 50th birthday!

Here's what Melissa says -

Today, my sister Theresa turns 50!  So we're having a virtual birthday party to celebrate her.  But we have more to celebrate because she's also turning 5.  5 years ago Theresa was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  So we're excited that she's now cancer free - she is a SURVIVOR!
So to celebrate this occasion, we are having a special month long challenge.  Here are the specifications:
  • You need to create a card or project that is Pink and Birthday themed and link it (directly) below
  • This isn't a blog hop, it's a party, so please mingle with your hostesses.  In other words, visit the hostesses blogs at your leisure and leave them some love.  There's no particular order that you have to follow.
  • You must stop by the birthday girl's blog and leave her a message.  You might want to anyway, because I hear she's got a prize there.

So, I couldn't resist but try and make a card for this special occasion. Special love and hugs to Theresa!!

Here is my card -



This card is a little different for me. I decided I wanted to try and create a nice big bow for this card. I cut strips of the ribbon and made them into circles. I used glossy accents to get it all to stay together and added a button with Whisper White Baker's Twine for good measure.

The pink ute is the truck from my Loads of Love set, stamped onto Blender Paper and coloured with Stampin' Write markers. The dies are the Framelits Labels collection. The gorgeous flowers are from Inspired by Stamping.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY THERESA AND HERE'S TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!!

Thanks for looking xx
