C4C151, FWF, and Ruth49 Card...

A confusing title?  Yeah, I know...

First of all... Happy Friday and good bye August... and a long weekend starting today! Woo hoo!

I made a card with triple purpose.  That's why the title covers it all...

First... just for sharing in the Unity FWF.
Second... for a coworker's mother on her 49th. birthday.
And third... for my entry in Crazy4Challenges (sketch below).




The card needed to be bright, with yellow color, festive...

So I played with the name of the lady, and the age to celebrate...

The numbers are stamps from Unity... I've got them a long while ago with a bunch from these bags they bundle and you buy just because you want to be surprised... LOL!  And Unity never disappoints!


I also used the computer to write a phrase her son always tell the mother often which is "The best mother that I have"...  Of course is a joke because she is the only mother he has!!!


So here's the final product...


I made the banner by hand and used washi tapes to decorate with the chipboard circle letters.  I also embossed part of the background to provide texture. Also used ribbon and punched border to decorate.

Do you like my card?

Well... do these three things now:   (1)leave a message, (2)get inspired and create something too, and (3)go enjoy your weekend...
