Fall Birthday

Another birthday card, I have a bout 7 birthdays in a 3 week period between the end of November and mid December.  It is always a mad rush to get them all finished amid the rush of finishing my Christmas cards.

I received the embossing folder (Darice) I used here from sweet Greta, I intended to use it on my Thanksgiving cards, but I made just a few, and my mojo was lacking.  However, it is perfect for this fall birthday card. 

I had a watercolor piece that was fall-ish in colors, and I found a card base that would work well too.  Birthdays need a bit of glitz as well, so some glitter paper was added to the pile. As a contrast to the glitter, I added some twine and wood veneer leaves.  I kinda like the differences between the wood and the sparkle.

I adore this large sentiment from the Make a wish set by Mama Elephant.  There is no guessing the occasion for this card. I used the largest circle from MFT's stitched circle dies for my center piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

gorgeous, Cat! Love the embossing folder and that big sentiment. I, too, have a lot of birthdays to celebrate during the month of December and January. Gotta' find the time to make cards and then see if my mojo is hanging around somewhere, too!

Oooh, so many Fall birthdays - jealous! I love the repurposed watercolor background with that big bold birthday sentiment. And the contrast of glitter and twine is spot on!
