Perfection Handmade Birthday Card

I make more birthday cards than any other kind. I made this card for my daughter's birthday. She is an awesome young woman and I am very proud of her.

This is how I made the card:
I started with a blank 5" by 7" kraft greeting card.

The background patterned paper is "On the Shore Stripe/Dark Blue Paper" by Kaleidoscope (My Mind's Eye, 2006). I found a packet of this lovely coordinating double-sided paper at my favorite thrift shop.

I stitched the different layers of paper together and used a piece of vintage lace for embellishment.

I used the digital stamp "Perfection" from Mo's Digital Pencil. I printed the image on white cardstock and colored it with Copic Sketch markers.

I used three sentiments from the Tim Holtz "Small Talk" pack.

I used my Dymo label maker to make the word "BIRTHDAY" at the bottom of the card.

I finished the card with a Tim Holtz ticket and a green paper clip.

I will enter this card in Mo's Challenge 252 - Anything Goes.

Thank you for taking a look at my card. Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
