Calendar Girls Birthday Wishes!

It is the 28th of the month, so I am here to welcome you to another round with the Calendar Girls!

Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers.  Terry
is our hostess this month and this is what she wrote for us to follow:  

September is a month full of changes. From the leaves on the trees changing colors, to me changing how old I am.

My challenge to you is to use the attached sketch to create a birthday card. Your card can be for a male or a female but it needs to include one type of embossing....can be dry embossed cardstock or a wet embossed image, your choice!

Have fun with it and create something wonderful! 

Here is the sketch we followed:

 I really like using sketches--it makes the process a whole lot easier and faster! 

Here is the inside of my birthday card:

Image/Sentiment—Unity Itty Bitty Candles, Starts & Birthday Wishes

Cardstock—Stampin' Up Real Red, Pacific Point, White; We R Memory Keepers Red, White & Blue Patriotic Alphabet Patterned Paper

Ink—SU Pacific Point

Accessories—Red Stripe Ribbon, Cuttlebug Stars Embossing Folder;

Please check out the blogs of all of the Calendar Girls—there are 10 of us, so it might take you a bit.   I am sure you will enjoy all the creations! All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar. Thanks for joining us this month!
