Golden Birthday

Hi all!  I really didn't intend to take that long of a blog break.  Just got busy and didn't feel like blogging.  I know most of you get that.  I have still been making cards -- mostly because my friends and family still have birthdays coming up.

Here's one I made for my daughter using some of her favorite colors: black, gold and burgundy.

I just loved this Apache Blessing and doesn't it look cool embossed in gold?  Love it!  The gold strips are mulberry paper.  I used my hole punch to make the little gold dots from some gold Christmas stickers.

She adored this card.  It's totally her style - a bit busy for my taste, but just right for her.

Hope all is well with each of you!

 All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:  Inside Out Birthday II
Paper:  True Black, Scarlet Jewel, mulberry paper (unknown)
Ink:  Versamark
Other:  circle nestabilities, gold Christmas stickers, gold EP

Such a beautiful card. I love that Apache blessing and use it on the inside of birthday cards alot. I am going to try it embossed in gold on the outside next time. Love it in a circle, too.
