Girly Flowery birthday card for Juliana SFYTT Kazan's sketch

Hi everyone! I hope you all are well- my hubby is out of town
:(...... visiting our new nephew:)
and the boys start school this week and next, so its back to the grind! Because I've been trying to squeeze in back to school shopping, laundry, and those last few fun summer activities, I'm multitasking. This card, for example, is a birthday card, a blog post and a SFYTT challenge for the week. And if Flutterby Wednesday does another open challenge tomorrow, I will submit this as well. We will see what they do- I posted on a whim and my card was featured!!! :) I'm sure all of you veteran bloggers are used to being featured, but not me, this is my VERY first time! I really couldn't be happier about it!! It's the card below, the fairy card that was featured.
Ok, back to today's card..... my friend Juliana is well known for being the girliest girl you could ever meet. She lives in CA and she's coming to see me this week, YEA!!! Her b-day was last week, so I am (LATE!) finally getting around to her b-day card. Here is this week's SFYTT link. http://iheart2stamp.com/2010/07/31/totally-stampalicious-sponsored-sfytt/ ***After I posted, I realized this card would also work for Kazan's sketch! Here is the link for that as well:) AND I was able to submit it for Flutterby Wednesday as well. Click on my "I was Featured" button over there, and it will take you to that challenge. TALK about multitasking!! :)***Soooo..... NEW stamp set fresh outta the package. This is Hero Arts Poly Clear set "Earth Flowers." They say it stamps like rubber and it's really true. I like these FAR better than the image quality of regular silicone stamps. Paper is from SU! retired DSP "Cottage Wall." Ribbon, also SU!, also retired, Rich Razzleberry polka dot ribbon. Nestabilities die. Button from my button jar (most of the buttons I use are from those little packs on the clothes you buy? Yep- I save them ALL- a good money saving tip, if you don't do this!) The birthday stamp is from SU! "Upsy daisy" Lets see, what else, oh.... floral wire and mini rhinestones. Colors are: SU! Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Opulence. That's it! Have a great day, all! I'm making ALOT of cards today, so I'll try to get another post or 2 in this week. Please comment or follow. I'd LOVE to hear from you!!! :)
