A Special Birthday!!!

For those of you that are fans of Impression Obsession - you know Mitra Friant is the mover and shaker of the company. She started it more than a decade ago and really wears every hat in the company!! So, this card is my way of saying -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Kick back and relax my friend - you deserve it! I am sending along some HAPPY thoughts!

See? ;-)

This card was made with some brand new Leigh Hannan stamps! This one is called Bird Cages and I think it's just darling. I just stamped, colored with Copic markers and added a little sparkle with some Copic Spica pens. The sentiment is called Happy Thoughts. Layer it up with some decorative paper, add some ribbon and bling and.... done!

Here's a close up....Happy Birthday again Mitra!!! The other IO gals wanted to send birthday wishes too!

Cool card! Like the left hand punched border. Your "man" card is a bit iffy with those polka dots, though. I mean, really ~ when was the last time Ken & Cal put on their matching polka dot polos? Your twine gets very high marks, as does the hole punched black band, so all is not lost. Hope you have a great party tonight and a warm & sunny weekend.

A really beautiful card, Julie! Like always! A wonderful tribute too!

Love how you used the birds! For some reason, I only ever thought of coloring the birds yellow. You have opened up a whole new world for me! :)
