WMSC#79: Birthday Wishes

Today I have a card I made for WMSC#79, the first sketchof 2012.  Here is what the sketch looked like:
Being a little short on time this week, my card needed to be CAS.  Here it is:


I used a smokey shadow cardbase stamped with a sentiment from Say It Loud and embossed it with a leafy pattern embossing folder.  I stamped the smaller rose from Roses in Bloom onto some polka dot Stampin Up paper, and popped up all three layers.  The striped strip is also Stampin Up Paper which was layered over two rows of the very large border stamp from Victorian Frippery.  I did a little zig zag and straight stitching and added a few of the pretty leaves from Roses In Bloom for a little additional color.  The final touch was a little glitter to the flower center.  Thanks for taking a look at my first card of 2012!

This is a gorgeous card ! I love the embossing folder you used. And I love the smokey shadow , I used that today too. It's a soft alternative to black. Beautiful flower and nice job on sewing. I will have to check if any new stamps came in yet. Great first card of 2012!

What a great card. You can do CAS so well. Don't let Carly sway you! Love the colors and that border is just so cute. I wish I knew how to sew on my cards, but I would probably just muck it up.
