Wishing You a Happy Birthday...

Happy Sunday! Hope you've had a nice weekend. :) I have been making cards like crazy over the past couple days. I'm usually pretty slow when making my cards, but I'm working on a card project for my office so have had to pick up the pace a little bit.

At my office we have a stash of cards on hand for special occasions. I was looking through it recently and thought why not make some cards to add to it? We also hand out cards to each person in the office when it's their birthday, so I made several birthday cards too.

Here is one of the birthday cards I made for our office.

I used PTI Star Prints (one of my all time favorite PTI sets), and the sentiment is from Through the Trees set. The labels frame is from Waltzingmouse's Very Vintage Labels No.1. This is my first time using PTI's impression plates and I got to say, it is so awesome! Love the detail that it adds. I liked how the plaid stripes work with the star image.

That's all for now, but I'm going to post all of the cards I made over the next few days. I've already got the posts scheduled, so be sure to stop back by if you get a chance! Thanks so much for taking a peek at my blog. I appreciate so much that you stopped by. 

Wishing you a sunny day! :)

Oooh, that looks fab Monica!! That impression is so crisp and I love your colour scheme and how you've framed the sentiment with the score lines!

I think you might have sold me on this impression plate now, grrr! lol!

Your impression background is just so crisp just like Taheerah said!! Love the star focal point!

Excellent card! Love the colors and how you used the embossing plate for the background as well as embossing the focal image and the sentiment strip.

Love the white-on-white with red and a pop of yellow! Very fresh and summer-y. Also like the way the BG draws me in...very nice.

Awesome card, Monica! I really like the impressed background - it adds just the right touch to a card without distracting from the main image.
