Happy Birthday to me!

What better day to post a birthday card to share than your own birthday?

Today is my 48th birthday and I am so happy I still get to celebrate. I am enjoying a day at my craft desk crafting and creating. I always make sure I take my birthday off from my day job so I can do something I love. Do you also take your birthday off?

The card I am sharing today shows off the spotlight technique. This simply means I am highlighting an image or paper. This lovely paper is a favorite from the Occasions catalog, and it will soon be leaving us! This is the All My Love DSP and you can still get it until June 3rd! To make this card I started with a 4 1/4 x 11 inch card base in Basic Gray. I then cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of the All My Love DSP. I used my Layering Circle Framelits to cut out a piece of the DSP near the bottom left of the card. I also cut out a slightly larger circle in Lovely Lipstick card stock. I colored the flowers in the circle I cut out with my Light Real Red and Light Flirty Flamingo Blends. This is what makes it more of a spotlight! I added some All My Love Ribbon and added the circle on the card, with dimensionals, so that it matches up to the design on the paper. I added a Happy Birthday sentiment, from the Amazing Life stamp set, and Metallic Pearls to finish it off.
