A birthday card

I wanted to share the birthday card that coordinates with the Gratitude Journal I made for my sister-in-law (which you can see here & here.)

To make it, I used this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #30: Coloured Pencils.


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (ocean tides, vintage cream), stamps (falling leaves & botanical silhouettes (sentiment)) and die (mat stack #5). I also used We R Memory Keepers patterned paper and coloured in the little birds stamp by Inkadinkadoo.

Thanks for looking!

I looked through all of your fabulous pictures for the Gratitude Journal and now your matching card. WOW ... you really did an amazing job on all of the details. I'm not usually a "blue" stamper, but I absolutely love the plaid paper and the blue used for stamping the various leaves and tree images etc. The card is really sweet as well - those birds look like they would be very versatile. Thanks for sharing!!

Wow--I just looked at all three of your posts, and they took my breath away. What a beautiful journal you made for your sister in law. I'm sure your name will be right up top on the first page! So much thought and work went into every page. I hope you had time to make one for yourself, too!
