Birthday Basket

K, so I totally copied myself here.  I needed a card in a hurry, so I thought I'd just skip the whole 'let's be creative' part of my routine and instead went with 'I need a hip card that was previously well received'.  Going thru my mental gallery, I came across this card.  I still love this card, which is saying a lot.  Usually after about a week of looking at something, it loses its appeal.  (oh, i should clarify that this just applies to my cards. after 17 years, i must say my husband is still pretty stinkin' cute!)  *Ahem* Back to the card. Of course I had to change it up a little.  While I was making it, I realized that the white base just wasn't as nice as using the Aqua Mist.  And the Aqua Mist itself just made the whole card softer, which is what I was going for.  Huh, I guess working under pressure is good for me.  Maybe I should tell myself there's a deadline for winning the lottery!

That color is just so soothing, and good choice on the flower colors going with it. Yep, both the card and the hubby are pretty darned cute.

You did a fabulous job. I don't think any of us here would know that you did this last minute
