Today I want to wish my girlfriend, Carol, a very happy birthday!! Have a great day, sweetie! I'm so-o-o looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks. 
Because Carol is such a talented card maker, it is a challenge for me to create a "Carol worthy" card, but this is what I came up with. The gingham background and leaf branch (stamped twice) stamps are from Impression Obsession. I hand cut the banner and mat to accommodate the image. 
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you'll pop over to Carol's blog and wish her a happy birthday. I know she would love it.


  1. Carol should love this card, Colleen! It's beautiful! I love the classic looks of the gingham and the pretty leaves! Because you made it, it will be extra special to her.

  2. Colleen - this is an elegant and classy card and I'm certain that Carol will love it. The banner is a fabulous focal point and a great way to display the image. Love the earthy tones of the gingham and the embellishments - perfect combination with the green.
    Have a happy day - sylvia x
