Each Birthday is a New Beginning

Hello dear friends! Today's card was made for the Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast.


I was inspired by this lovely Mandarin Wasabi Rug .

It reminded me of this pretty Cosmo Cricket patterned paper I had called Material Girl. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker and the pins are from Marks Finest Papers. I used Labels 8 to cut my panel and Deckled Mega Rectangles for my sentiment.
I sponged all the edges with Ranger Distress Antique Linen.
Thanks so much for coming by today!
Wednesday I'm having my surgery but I will be posting my card for the Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz starting in the WMS forum Playroom so be sure to come by! (check it out on my side bar and join in - the theme is Christmas!
Stamps: Rubbernecker - Garden Phrase Set #508
Paper: Summer Sunrise, Vintage Cream, Blueberry sky - PTI, DP Cosmo Cricket Material Girl/Inspiration
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Antique Linen
Accessories: foam dimensionals, wrinkled seam binding - www.prairiebirdboutique.etsy.com , pins & jewels - Marks Finest Papers, stylized flowers embossing folder - Cuttlebug, rhinestones - Kaiser, Labels 8 and Deckled edge mega rectangles - Nestabilities.

Hi Julie! I didn't want to comment again on the Hop post....Just stopping by to let you know that I am thinking of you. Hope your surgery went well and you are at least comfortable for the moment. Take care and get some rest! Dee
