An Over-the-Top Happy Birthday

I participated in an Over-the-Top (WOW) Birthday swap at 2014 Convention and I never shared my creation.  
First of all, this is a little bit different fold.  On the cover, the flap tucks neatly and securely into the For You scallop, each layer is between dimensionals.  The Happy Birthday is embossed in Silver embossing powder.  The left panel is Crushed Curry co'renations cardstock, embossed and sanded for the perfect distressing.  I wheeled the Amazing Accent in Coastal Cabana ink on an angle on the Coastal Cabana piece.  Stretch trim and three basic rhinestone jewels top off the front of this masterpiece.    

Here's the card half-way open, so you can see the fold.  
Not much on this inside, but I did pierce the top and bottom panel.  

Making 16 of these was a little nutty :) But this is one of my favorite cards I've ever made.  I dropped the original in the mail today. I sent it to Denise, I hope she'll love it as much as I do. 

Do you think this was a WOW card?

my Friend

Last night two of my dear friends arrived in town.  I love them both like brothers and although I'm tired today, staying up last night was worth it.  Listening to full-grown men giggle warms my heart.  We are off to an all-day training session.  
I hope you have a wonderful Friday.

Saying Good-Bye

Sorry for the delay, you can find the retired products by clicking on the image or CLICK HERE

I'll be back with another crafty project tomorrow. 

Hello Sweet Friend

Did you see the Retirement List yesterday?  The Stampin' Up! website will be updated - items (both accessories and stamps) will be available while supplies last. 

This was a special card that my friends and I made at Cocktails and Cards a couple weeks ago.  

To get a lighter image, we stamped-off once in Basic Gray.  
Have a wonderful day.
