Bonjour Birthday Girl!

Remember that one time I said I was going to make a big stack of birthday cards from the It's My Party DSP stack so I'd never send a late card again? Yeah...it hasn't happened yet, so this card is late! But it's CLOSE! I'm sending it to my awesome Mom ON her birthday. (And she loves me just the way I am, so she won't mind that it's late. Anyway, it'll still be her birthday week, so technically it's not late. Right?)


Oh Sale-a-Bration how we LOVE you!!!! The beautiful Wildflower Fields paper (AND the stamps were free products from this years Sale-a-Bration! Technically, it's two different stamp sets because I got it in both English and French. Even my non-French speaking friends and family understand a few words like bonjour or merci, so I like to get both languages just for fun. :) 

I stamped in Versamark and embossed in gold. (Yes I'm obsessed.) I thought the vellum was perfect for highlighting "bonjour" and not hiding all that beautiful paper! Cuz if I'm gonna cut into that gorgeous stuff, I am NOT hiding it! haha!

I added a few fun flowers with the new blossom bunch punch to soften it just a little and added a metal rimmed pearl to the center of each one.


The inside is also embossed with a great sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes set. (What else do you say to the best Mom in the world???) I love that script/brush lettering! And even better that it's not EXACTLY like the lettering on the front. Definitely gives it more of a handmade feel. :)


Maybe I'll make a stack of these without the birthday sentiments to have on hand for every occasion. (After I get that stack of birthday cards ready...of course.) It's a great layout to use with all different kinds of DSP!
