Today several of us are saying Happy Birthday to our friend, Carol. The complete list can be found HERE (thanks to Bev for organizing this!)
I don't know how Carol found my blog, but some time ago I started getting her exuberant comments always lifting my spirits. We became friends & hope to meet in person when she's back in my neck of the woods. She's not a fan of the cold, snowy winters where she lives, so decided to make her a card looking toward Spring. I die cut the Penny Black iris, 51-005, from old purple glitter paper I've had for years. The negative was cut with Spellbinders Labels 10. Then I die cut the iris again from white cardstock & stamped it lightly in aqua with Penny Black's music background, 2025M, before putting it in the negative cut. The card front was dry embossed & the edges were sponged with the same ink. The sentiment from Penny Black's friendship, 30-160, was stamped on vellum, cut into a tag, matted with vellum & attached with a bow.
Happy, Happy Birthday, dear Carol! Hugs, Greta
