Birthday Wishes for My Grandma

Hey there! Today, I wanted to share a card I made for one of my most favorite people in the world.  :)  My grandma turned 81 on Thursday... and I really can hardly believe it.  She still looks so stinkin' cute!  If I could live to be half the person my grandma is, I would be so blessed.


I wanted something soft and pretty for her... and found some inspiration from the GCD Studios blog:

I stamped the paisley image from Unity's Floral Fantastical set repeatedly and then colored bits with a cream colored pencil.  The butterfly is from the same set & I just popped it up a bit to give it some dimension.  And... I have to say - I'm so proud of myself for using my coveted Dear Lizzy ribbon & not just hoarding it like I normally would.  ;)

The sentiment is from PTI & I added some yummy Zva pearls.

Thanks for coming and taking a peek!  Have a great weekend!

  1. Look at that lovely ribbon rose! What a beautiful color! I was hoping for a pic of your cute grandma too though...your grandma is young! My dad (were he still alive)would be 86 next week, so it's so strange to think that he's older than your grandma! *giggle*
    Beautiful card, as always Julie.

  2. Gorgeous card. The roses are wonderful. Happy Birthday to your Grandma. It's funny because my mom is 81 and I think she's pretty awesome too. But now I'm feeling OLD.
    Love your new photo.

  16. Julie, you should be proud of yourself for this one. Beautiful. I love the way you used the paisley in the background, very light and then accented it with the cream. Very very nice.
