Happy Birthday Mom!

Yeah, I know!  She gets back to back cards AND gifts!!  Lucky lady huh?  Now, you hens would probably not believe this, but little Marcie here from ByLoriDesigns looks just like me when I was little.  Curly reddish hair and a TOMBOY to say the least.  Oh yeah, dirt and me went hand in hand!  So I thought my Mom would get a kick out of this card for her birthday.

I wanted to do something a little different today, so I decided to make a tall card.  This card's measurements are 4' wide by 9.25' tall.  It fits perfectly into a Number 10 business envelope if that gives you an idea of the size.  It's pretty neat though and it gives you lots of design room too!  I printed the image onto some Neenah Classic Crest white CS and then colored it with my Copics.  I stitched the image to some SU Basic Black CS and then added it to this cute DP from October Afternoon's Farmhouse collection.  I matted each DP panel with the SU Basic Black CS and stitched with black thread as well.  To finish, I printed the sentiment from the Little Talk Sentiments set (also from ByLoriDesigns) and punched it out with my SU oval punch and added this cute gingham ribbon on top.   I hope she likes it!

Now be sure to pop over to the BLD website and take a gander at the rest of the BLD Design Team's eye candy for today!  {{{hen hugs}}}
