Happy Birthday, Louise (Mojo Monday 234)

Yesterday was my dear friend, Louise's birthday.   Louise is such a kind and giving person.  She works hard for our church and her family.  We often get together to scrapbook while our boys play airsoft, go swimming, work on models, build Legos or play games.    She has made me feel more "at home" here in Washington than she could ever know.  I appreciate her and her friendship.  Here is the card I made to celebrate her.  :)

Having 2 boys, I know she will enjoy this soft, "girly" card.   (at least I hope she will)

The most difficult part of this card was deciding which bow to use.  The Concord Crush looked really good too, but I went with the more feminine look.

My inspiration for the card came from this week's Mojo Monday Sketch.

To finish off the inside I stamped the Happy Birthday image in Wisteria Wonder, then I took another piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamped it in Concord Crush and used a circle punch to just punch out the center "Birthday".  I adhered it using Snail Adhesive.  It's hard to see in the picture, but the little bit of contrast is nice.

I hope she likes it and that it makes her feel special.  :)
