Happy Birthday, Nana... Again ~RS#23

Today is my Mother-in-law's birthday.  We sent her card out earlier, so she would hopefully have it by today.  After talking to her today and wishing her happy birthday I went to the hobby room and made her another card.    Poor thing wasn't feeling well today.  I thought another card for her birthday week might bring joy to her heart.

As I've said before, Nana likes yellow.  She also likes pink, florals and antiques.  I hope she will like this card. I used my new favorite stamp set, Affection Collection, and the colors Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron.

This week's Retro Sketches gave me the inspiration I needed.  As soon as I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to use that stamp set.  All I needed to decide were the colors. 

Isn't that a cute, CAS, card sketch?   Of course, I added some extra layers, but I kept a lot of "white space" like the original sketch has.  I want to make another card and try to copy the sketch exactly.

The inside of the card was a happy accident using some of my "leftovers".  I stamped several colors of banners to see which ones I would like together, and I had these 3 left over.   As I placed them on the inside they looked like they were hanging, so I went with that.   I "hung" them on a strip of paper, then punched out some little flowers and used them as "hangers".  This has inspired me to make another card.  :)   If it looks as cute IRL as it does in my head I will post it on this blog. 

Creative Blessings,
Heather North
