He's not a particularly serious guy, so I used one of my fave stamps by American Art Stamp. I colored in the image using blender pens and ink from the tops of my SU ink pads. I followed the sketch exactly which always makes it easier to make a card quickly. This only took me about 20 mins. The base is SU True Thyme cs and the decorative paper is from the DCWV Old World Stack. The textured DCWV yellow cs was run through my Cuttlebug using the Birthday embossing folder. I just love my Cuttlebug!! I sanded it with a sanding block and mounted it on SU Blue Bayou cs. I distressed all the edges except for the layers that are stamped, but I did sponge them. I hope he like it!! And I am proud of myself for posting to my blog again this week!!! WhoooHooo!! I am on a roll!! See all the rests of my card deets below and thanks for checking out my new blog!

I created a trio that she can wear all together or individually. The colored Swarovski crystals are 6mm and the clear ones are 4mm and are by Pure Allure. I also used some liquid silver tube beads by Bead Bliss. Each bracelet is 7" and is finished off with a 1.3mm silver crimp bead. To string everything on I used .5mm Stretch Magic jewelry cord. Her husband threw her a super party, and I think she was very happy when she opened my gift! Happy Birthday, Mary!
