Happy Birthday Jenn......very, very late. (CCMC240)

Wow.....this picture is really terrible.  Sorry about that!  I've been searching for my mojo, but to no avail.  This card is going to go to my sister-in-law for her birthday.  Her birthday was last week.....yes, that's right, I still have the card and the gift.  Now, I could make up some story about why the card and the gift haven't left my home yet.....but I have no excuse at all.   She LITERALLY lives around the corner from me.  I drive by her house everyday.  EVERYDAY.  And yet, I still have not delivered her birthday gift.  I might be the worst sister-in-law on the planet.  I am actually patting myself on the back for at least posting on my blog today.  Shame on me.

Anyway..... I made this cute little card using the color challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary  I think these colors are great together!!  I used an old sketch from Retrosketches for the layout.  Those rhinestones are the new jumbo rhinestones from SU's Spring seasonal catalog.  They are huge and VERY bling-y. You can just barely see the little buttons underneath the rhinestones.  The stamp is from the Best of Birthday stamp set.   The sentiment (that is impossible to read in the picture) says "a candle for every year might not be such a good idea...".  I stamped in Basic Gray and colored using my Stampin' Write markers.  Another little detail that is hard to see in the picture is the scoring around the edge of the white layer that I did using my Simply Scored.

Thanks for checking in today!
