Something to Celebrate Birthday Card

Once again I caught on Google Images eyeing up cards and I ran across this one.  This is SO my older sister.  She loves this kind of stuff.  She is a huge fan of Frank Lloyd Wright's stuff.  I recall many years ago she had gone to his museum and there she bought a cross stitch kit of one of his stained glass "things" and asked me to stitch it up for her.  There were three images in the kit and when I had finished it she took them in to be professionally framed.  Now you have to love something a LOT to have it professionally framed like that!!!  LOL  Anyway, this is going to be her card when I get done posting it here.  And no, it's not her birthday, I just know she is going to want this card!

I found the original card here.  I could have made it with the colors that were used but I wanted to use up some more paper in that Print Poetry pack.  There's still a LOT of paper left in there!   I have used it a lot so I guess that means it was a good deal for the money, right?  LOL  There's subtle changes from their card to mine but both are nice cards!

I liked this card because it was quick and simple to make.  I did stack two of the decorative sheets together before I punched them out.  I find that decorative paper doesn't punch as clean on the edges when you do them singly.  I often use a piece of scrap copier paper when I'm doing just one sheet!

This was fun to do and I could see myself making more (probably with my sister!!!). 

The words are from the "Something to Celebrate" set that retired a while back.  I tend to hang on to word stamp sets.  I like to have a variety of them on hand.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
