Happy Birthday, Amelia!

Finally, a card:) Life has very much gotten in the way of stamping time. Sick grandkids, travel, extra help with grandkids, etc. My mother-in-law is failing and won't be with us much longer.

But, I had to get this card done. It's for our only granddaughter, who will turn seven on March 29. She is just the sweetest thing:) This card measures four by seven inches. The flower, leaves and stem stamp are from an old Stampin' Up! set. I colored with Copics. I stamped the flower again on scrap cardstock, cut out the center circle and mounted on Pop Dots. I added a min-brad to the center. I also added Star Dust Stickles to the flower center and the dots on the flower. The sentiment is from a Stampabilities set. I stamped with Versafine black and used sparkly embossing powder on it. Rather a simple card (that took me a while to make!) but I hope she will like it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I can't believe Amelia is going to be 7 already!!! Such a pretty card for her! Sorry about the sickness and situation with your MIL. Those family times always take priority and you are doing just what you need to do. :)

OMG, so cute! I think it's perfect for your sweet little granddaughter. I always loved this set. I saved it for a long time, but then I think I finally let it go on the last purge. Darn. At least I think... I'll have to go check. Rich is pounding away in my stamp room right now, so I'll check later. Glad you got to stamp, Lynette!
