Cary,myself and our Girls took Mom and my sister, Lynn, to the Jubilee to watch the touring Broadway Across Canada show of Wicked
My Oldest made yummy cupcakes to help celebrate the occasion and then we all headed over to get our seats for the start of the show and be spellbound!
Her birthday card started out with the idea of some Diva type stamps and a simple layout...the images switched to fun stamps from the Happy Hour set, using markers and stamping off to get the fainter colour for the 'champagne martini'. I used a new paper pack from the Stampin'Up! catalogue called Confetti Celebraton. With Lynn's birthday in August, I went with the bitrhstone idea of Pistachio..and then played up her favourite fall colours and went with Cajun Craze instead of Tangelo Twist as the accent colour...cutting some strips and tilting them at an angle for the background. A Starburst Framelit sets off the sentiment.
The Big Shot is on Special this month, if you don't own one yet, it's a great time to buy one ~ even the simplest card like this one gets a little punch from running a piece of paper through and transforming it. With your purchase (click here) you get to select a framelit and stamp bundle! Value of over $40, at least.
