Birthday Card for Rachel Marie Townsend

Our granddaughter, Rachel celebrates her 19th birthday tomorrow, the 22nd. She is the daughter of Gerry's oldest son, Erik. They live in Mt. Home, ID. Gerry was just with them on the yearly ski trip to Bogus Basin, ID. I have used this particular stamp for several cards. It is fun to color. Rachel's favorite color is purple. The card base is orchard, then there is a layer of a pale turquoise, a layer of white that I embossed with the Cuttlebug, then I repeated the layers again. I used copic markers to color the flower and added a sheer polka dot lavender ribbon. Gerry told me Rachel loved her card.

I gotta ask Leslie to invest in that Cuttlebug thing too so I can borrow.

Jalna, you'll be hooked once you use the Cuttlebug. You'll want one of your own. :) I love using it!
