Ambrosia Birthday

I made this card for my mother in law. It's her birthday and we'll be celebrating here at my house this Saturday with the entire family!
I really didn't want to play today! Nothing was interesting to me today. I wanted to play with all my new stamps that I received on the ship and they are not in the house! I was going to drive down to Long Island and pick them up but I didn't have the time today. I had to go shopping to get what I need for Saturday, and I can't go tomorrow because it looks like I'm going to be picking up a new vehicle tomorrow...nothing real exciting...just a new Escalade...well, I guess that is exciting! My kids are so thrilled about it. This one has two tv monitors and the old one only had one! lol
Getting back to the card, I have a bucket of these lovely large Ambrosia flowers from Prima flowers and worked around that. The colors I used are blush blossom and brocade blue. I used the Martha Stewart punch to create the border around the edges and then stamped a panel with the Flourishes Damask BG stamp. I tied some sheer green ribbon around it and then attached a charm with some gold cord to the ribbon.
(I had ordered 125 charms to swap on the cruise and they didn't get here before I left. My dh told me the box arrived on Monday, the day after I left....so you will probably be seeing lots of charms on my cards in the near future!)
Have a great day!

** I did not make the dt that I applied for with I heart papers, but so many of my blogging friends did make it onto the team. I'd like to take this time to congratulate them. They are all so talented! I can't wait to see what they all come up with in the near future**

Thanks for the well wishes! You were definitely one of my top picks and I was so sad to have to say no. I hope you keep in touch! You make beautiful cards. - Kate
