A Day to Remember!

Hello! Are you glad the weekend's arrived? I hope you're all getting some rest and as well as some creative time.

Today I made a card using this week's VLV sketch designed by the terrifically talented Amy Sheffer!! My daughter is having her first birthday away from home. She's a Freshman in college and is turning 18, so I made a card for her in her style. She loves black, and isn't a huge flower fan. So, I made a Rosette medallion and attached two Tiny Sweet Scallop tags to it. The sentiments are from the Verve sets Sunny Days and Tag Time.

That's it for today. Have a wonderful weekend!!
Happy Stamping!

Man oh man Tosh, you really nailed that card. Your daughter is going to just LOVE your card. Happy Birthday to your "little girl" (because she will always be your little girl).

Fabulous use of Amy's sketch, Tosh. I know your daughter will love receiving it :) Nothing better than mail from home when you are at Uni :)

Fabulous distressing, Tosh and I love that funky stitching! I'm sure that your daughter will enjoy it, sans flower...(however, in my mind that rosette looks like a beautiful little black-eyed Susan, hehe). Gorgeous, as always, my dear...your blog is a source of unending inspiration!

so cute, neat stitching, those first birthdays that they are away is tough, but getting a card handmade from Mom will be a wonderful thing!
