HAPPY BIRTHDAY PP #169 Friday Mashup #133

October 28, 2013

I am trying to get ahead on my to-do list----(that will never happen)!!!  (Oh and by the way, that ironing pile is still in my laundry room from last week!)  I got my Halloween cards in the mail today so, now on to November.  My Bonus Daughter's birthday is next week, so I wanted to make a special card for her.  She LOVES rhinestones and bling so, when I saw that the Friday Mashup was for a birthday cake card with Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Basic, Grey and Smokey Slate, I knew just what I wanted to do.  I really like The Paper Players sketch, too.  It is perfect for my card!!!

                                              


It is very gloomy today---the Basic Grey looks black or purple in the photos---SORRY!
