A Beautiful Birthday

For one of this month's projects, I used the "Vogue" papers that I love so much to make a birthday card.  My daughter turned the big infinity (eight) this month, so I've had birthdays on my mind!
The most challenging and also fun part of scrapbooking or card making for me is to use many elements (embellishments, techniques) and still have the project look simple, detailed, and beautiful.

This card includes hand stitching, rub-ons, a ribbon punch, hand-cut flowers, marker, ink, brads, pop-up dots, and texture paint. I still have a lot of white space and the design flows beautifully. I used two colors of thread for the hand stitching (silver and green) to create a little "whimsy."

This is one of my all time favorite cards... so I hope you like it too!
