Happy Birthday to My Shelbie Delaine!!

Delayed this post to 12/16 so my daughter would not see it until she got home to get the card (she checks out my blog from school - ~grin~).
Today is my daughter's 18th birthday. She won't be coming home from college until tomorrow, but thankfully will be with some friends from here at home who are also attending Norwich, and they are taking her out for dinner this evening. Here is the card I made for her. I used stamp glue on the Flourishes Damask background and sprinkled it with lavender glitter. The flower is from Rubbernecker. Inked it up with lavender and then "tipped" it Sapphire Silk. Green and Stucco on the leaves. Then inked the edges and sponged over the image. Then did the cracked glass technique with UTEE. Attached it to the background. Used the Spellbinders ribbon tag for the sentiment which is a rub-on, threaded gold ribbon through it. Added the gold Dew Drop at the top. The mushy stuff is inside. :)

Stamps: Rubbernecker Flora and Flairs, Flourishes Damask.
Paper: The Paper Studio.
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Spellbinders, UTEE, ribbon, Dew Drop, glitter, stamp glue, Making Memories rub on.

Wow, Nancy, this is beautiful. What cool techniques! I'm sure your daughter loved it. My granddaughter's birthday was 12-15, her name is Shelby, and she was 5. I'll post the card I did for her soon. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous card. (By-the-way, I had to get those Fairies.... my Shelby will love them. Thanks for providing the nudge I needed to get them.)
