Happy Birthday To You

We have so many family birthdays in the summer that I need to remember to stay stocked up on cards for family and friends.  This particular card is for a friend. - Mojo Monday Challenge #244 - I used a Verve Happy Birthday Stamp, vintage buttons, Melissa Frances and Cosmo Cricket patterned papers, lace trim, Ranger ink, MM velvet trim, PTI jute, machine stitching, complicated tag.  (lol)

Here is the Mojo Monday inspiration sketch:

Inspiration Into Unique Sketches - I used this sketch from Mojo Monday and tried to just put my own spin on it.  This was my inspiration - I've just had these columns or strips in my mind lately.  The only PTI product I used on this card was the jute I tied in the buttons, and used for the bow. - Simon Says Stamp/Diamonds Jubille, Crowns and Gems - I used some gorgeous "diamonds" on this project.  First, and a little hidden, is a diamond circle buckle slide by Making Memories.  Also, I have a "diamond" vintage button.  I removed the button shank, and the diamond lay flat on the paper. 

I will be doing lots of blog visits today.  I need to catch up on saying hello and visiting everyone's little cubby of cyber-space.  Thanks for visiting me here today.  I greatly appreciate your comments, and will visit you as well.
