Birthday card for Patrick

 I made this card for my daughters Fiance for his birthday.  The image and frame (which I fussy cut to set the image into) are from The Sum of All Crafts.   The background paper (also on the envelope liner) is from Gecko Galz, the paper is Tajmahal from Arabian Dreams collection.  I love the way the colors and prints all go together!  The papers are part of my win at Gecko Galz, I went crazy buying paper sets and paper sets are on special this month too, buy one get one free, what a bargain, I plan to stock up on a few more!  I used my Perfect Layers Rulers to get the precise layers on my card, see my sidebar for a coupon or click on my link.  I also used my new Inka Gold to trim the inside of the frame, which I purchased from the Flying Unicorn.  Wow, I was really impressed with their service and prices too!  I found some splendid bargains on the Inka Gold and Stickles and they were so prompt, I received my package 2 days after I ordered it!  And they even sent a present along with my order, a gorgeous package of Petaloo stick on flowers, thank you so much!  Don't you just love it when they give you an added surprise, I know I do!  I will definitely be shopping there again! Too bad you can not see the 40 tiny black rhinestones I added all around the frame.  Well that is it for today, we only saw 5 inches of snow, thank goodness, I hope my friends in Connecticut, Maine and Long Island are all OK, I have you in my prayers. 
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  8. Hi Diane,
    What an awesome birthday card for Patrick. Love the colors and details and I do see the black stones around the frame area.
    Love your trademark envelope to match.

    Hope you are staying warm there. Sounds like a weekend snowday!!
    It was cold here for us today in the 50's.
    Have a great evening.

  11. Hi Diane, ALL your cards are so attractive and have this special vintage feel to them. Your daughter's fiance will be more than impressed. The papers are just so handsome. And the image perfect for a male.
    The envelope is a work of art as well. You amaze me no end with your talent.
