Happy New Year and a Birthday card!

Happy Happy New Year my scrappy friends!  I hope you night was filled with happiness and friends and family!  We stayed home last night...hubby, me and the kids.  We ate really bad for you food and ice cream floats, played tons of games, laughed and watched the ball drop on tv.  We even stayed up a little past midnight..the kids were so tired they slept in the family room.  Can't wait to scrap those photos!

My mom's birthday is on the 9th of this month so here is a card I made for her.  Quick card but I love the way it turned out!

I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder, Happy Birthday, inked with Tim Holtz distressed inks - iced spruce, faded jeans, marmalade, used liquid pearls in rouge for the flowers.  The ribbon is from my stash as are the diamond gems.

This card is being entered into a few challenges:
Freshly Made Sketches #117 - sketch challenge
Red Carpet Studios #60 New Years Eve - use something new on your project - the liquid pearls are new!
Sentimental Sundays #187: Pick from our Favorite Challenge - I chose the # 170 challenge: Happy Birthday.

Wishing you many blessings for the new year~
