Mark's Birthday

Yesterday, we went to a birthday party for Mark, a man that my husband works with. He and his wife, Deana, are very nice people; and they have a son, Aiden, the same age as my son, Eric (2-1/2). Well, the two of them found a pretty good sized mud puddle. Boy, were they filthy!!! Eric got this huge blop of mud on his head, and it was dripping down his face. Normally, I don't let my children play in mud puddles. Good thing there was a tub nearby. Anyway, I needed a birthday card for Mark, so this is what I came up with. I CASEd the layout from Andrea Walford (she is amazing), but I used different stamp sets and different card stocks and DSPs. The card base is Tempting Turquoise, and I used layers of East Coast Prep DSP and Wild Wasabi card stock. I used my retired daisy punch to punch out a flower from each of Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi. I attached them together with a gold brad. I finished the card by tying some Wild Wasabi stitched grosgrain around the Wild Wasabi layers and attached it to the card with dimensionals. I also attached the little flower to the card with a dimensional. I really like the way this card turned out. Hey, check it out ~ I finally figured out how to add a copyright to the image. Now if only I could figure out that cool watermark thingy....
