Happy Birthday, Marlo

Yesterday was my wonderful friend, Marlo's birthday. I took her to lunch and, because we share a love for scrapbooking, I gave her some new My Mind's Eye decorative brads & matching 6x6 paper pack.

I also gave her this card, that I made using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Glitter buttons. (Isswear I'm getting addicted to this technique!)


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (rustic white), stamps (think big favourites #12, stitches & swirls) & buttons. The strip of patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket. I was inspired by this card by Betsy Veldman (just scroll down a little.)

Thanks for looking!
