Sweet birthday wishes...

I made this card for my youngest sister's birthday, which is today!

Happy Birthday, Michelle!

My little berry basket is a file from Silhouette. I honestly don't remember if it was a freebie or one that I purchased. I like it though. It's simple to cut out and put together, and I think it looks great.

The doily cut behind my berry basket was done with a Prima die. I'm always amazed at how pretty this doily is when I cut it out. I should definitely use it more often!!

On the inside of my card, I added another strawberry and printed the sentiment with my Silhouette. The "Sweet Birthday Wishes" on the front of the card was also printed with my Silhouette. I really love being able to print my sentiment and then cut out the perfect-sized rectangle of cardstock, all on one machine.

We finally got some snow here yesterday. No real accumulation yet, but I'm sure it won't be long before the white stuff is here to stay. Boo!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Your berries look good enough to pick and eat. Cute card to go with that sentiment

Yes you should use the doily more - it is really beautiful and adds an elegant touch. My hubby is pushing for me to get a "cutting" machine - I think he wants to play as well. I really like how you carry over your focal point to the inside of your cards. I need to do that more.

Yummmmm great card Cheryl, bet your sister loves it!
I see the snow on the Antrim mountains here, but think it's supposed to 'warm' up a bit, so hopefully none for us for a while.

Oh yes, polkadots make me smile. Yellow polkadots makes me sing and smile!
Beautiful card!

That cut file is terrific Cheryl and I LOVE the 'life' you have added to it with your shading! Those strawberries are making my mouth water! Thank you for continuing to pop by my blog and leaving your sweet comments, it means a lot to me, especially now, when my blogging and visits are so sporadic! I'm hoping Mum will be strong enough for me to ease off a little next year and I can get back to blogging proper again! Have a lovely Sunda! Hazel xx
