75th Birthday

Hi again!


I’m back with another birthday card. This one was created for my mother-in-law who celebrated her 75th birthday on Friday.  I incorporated several challenges (listed below) in making this card.




I used several stamps from the Stampin Up Number of Years stamp set, even the flowers were from the set! Even though it’s technically not fall yet, I wanted the card to have a fall feel to it and I think I accomplished that with the color palette and burlap.


The sketch used is from Freshly Made Sketches~


and the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts~


also the N is for Numbers challenge at Alphabet Challenge

and the birthday challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!


My MIL’s party was on Labor Day and I created tags for the favor bags.  A huge labor of love since I hand stamped 40 tags.  All the stamps used are from Lawn Fawn – Birthday Tags, Violet’s ABCs and Milo’s ABCs.



Have a great night!
