a birthday card for my daughter

My daughter was born on Valentine's Day! I know that she gets tired of hearts for her birthday but here goes! I did make another one that I am going to post next so I might give her that one instead. We are taking her out for supper tonight so we might have a long wait because of Valentine's Day! I have created this for 6 challenges.

Penny Black #38-Pretty in Pink
Just Us Girls # 71-Spotlight Technique
Friday Sketchers #141
Saturday Challenge #121- a Stamped Flower
Cute Card Thursdays #151-Hearts and Flowers
Penny Black at Allsorts February Challenge-Say it with Flowers

The paper that I used is Daisy D's and Melody Ross for GCD. I cut the hearts using my Spellbinder and Cuttlebug. I embossed the white heart with a folder from StampinUp. The saying is a rub on. I used the Spotlight technique on this Penny Black image. This is a fun technique to do! The border punch and leaves for the flowers are Martha Stewart. I added white daisies. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Well, now that I see this one, I think it is very special because of the hearts! Just too cute, will be a hard decision, but whichever one you decide on, she is going to love it. Love the spotlight technique, haven't done that in a long time......enjoy your dinner with your kiddo.
