Happy Birthday to my MIL!



I made this card for my Mother in-law's (MILs) birthday and I love the way it turned out. After I finished it, I thought I could also do something similar (and with the same sentiment) for a wedding.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Die Cuts R Us - Challenge 23 Ribbon
Flutterby Wednesday - Open Challenge
Totally Gorjuss - Dimension

I also made her a set of 8 note cards and box to hold them. Below is a sample of the cards and a photo of the card box.



Thank you for looking! Don't forget to check out my blog candy! (A link is at the top of my side bar.)

  • CS & PAPERS: Close to My Heart (CTMH) Silhouette, Stampin' Up white CS, Paper Studio black CS
