Happy 50th Birthday Scott! 54

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, December 1, 2011 @ 9:00 PM | , , ,

Hi there! I'm a week early but I wanted to make sure I had my sweet husband Scott's Birthday card made. As the saying goes, life happens while we are busy making plans so I wanted to be sure to have this one done plenty ahead of time! As I've said before, making masculine cards is not my forte but this one came together rather easily. Gotta LOVE when that happens!
I combined lovely patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Nantucket collection and the Pink Paislee Digital Family Matters paper pack. The plaid label is from the MFT Textile Rectangles set and was cut using the coordinating die. I used the 5 & 0 number dies from By the Numbers set to cut cardboard numbers which cut like butter!
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge:
I've been quite busy decorating my home over the past few days both inside as well as outside. A sweet friend of mine gave me the beautiful jars in the photo below several months ago. I put them to good use and filled them up with some pretty ornaments.
 Some of these ornaments are actually made of terracotta!
 I LOVE ornaments, can you tell? :)
Thanks so much for visiting ~ hope you have a great weekend! ***Don't forget to check out the Pink Paislee Winter Wonderland Event, click here, featuring awesome inspiration and DAILY GIVEAWAYS! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: MFT By the Numbers Stamp and die set
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Nantucket, Pink Paislee Digital Family Matters
