Parisian Summer Birthday

Parisian Summer Birthday

I wanted to make an elegant birthday card for my aunt, who is very elegant herself. The layout I used is this week’s Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO120), with a few tweaks.

Since it’s so unusually cold right now, I enjoyed pulling out this Parisian Summer DSP. I stamped the Verve images with SU! ink and cut the circle with a Nestie, then added a scalloped Pink Pirouette mat with another Nestie. The self-adhesive half pearls were colored with a Buttercup Yellow Copic marker before I adhered them to the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
