birthday wishes... 51

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, May 29, 2012 @ 6:10 PM | , ,

Hi there! I have several friends who will be celebrating their birthday's this month so here I am with another Birthday card to share. I played along for the first time with the PTI Make It Monday inspiration which is to create a Pocket Card. I dusted off the PTI Sending You stamp set and had lots of stamping fun!
Shown below is what the card looks like when inside the pocket. I didn't even use a single piece of patterned paper! I stamped both the pocket and tag with the beautiful blooms and leaves images 
and used a Sizzix embossing folder for the card background:
For color inspiration, I played along with the current ColourQ challenge:
and for sketch inspiration, I played along with the current retro sketches challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting! Be Sweet :)
