Graphic45 Birthday Card

Time again for one of my Graphic45 "orphans." This poor card was not shown in July on the Graphic45 Blog, and then it was in the line-up for a class I planned to teach in August, but due to my family situation, the class was cancelled. So...this poor card has not seen the light of day! It's too bad, because I love this card!

I used several different G45 papers: Times Nouveau Bee's Knees and Hip to the Jive, Domestic Goddess Farmers Market and Lady of the House. I covered a Basic Grey monogram chipboard with the paper. Yum! And I have a ton of these letters as I purchased a few sets for the class. I need to figure out another use for them, I guess.

You can see a tiny bit of the crochet lace trim and the fabbie clock charm.

I decorated the monogram with a paper rose, a Jenni Bowlin button, and some pins. What's a vintage card without some pins?! I stuck a few extra pins into the fabbie Prima flower!

Since I used a "b" monogram, I turned this into a birthday card. This Bee's Knees (cherry) paper just makes me smile! Perfect for birthdays!

I even dusted off my Spellbinders scallop square die to make a mat for my image!

Have an amazing Friday! Make sure to check out the links at the top of my blog for the CropStop Fall Frolic! Lots of challenges and prizes. If you play, you can win a prize RAK from me! Maybe some G45 paper and some of these monograms, perhaps....
