A Birthday Card by Sara :)

Good Morning! Sorry I've been away for what seems like forever to me. We took Sara and 3 of her friends to see the Jonas Brothers in concert last night. They played in Omaha about 2 hours from here, so Cliff and I went out to dinner and walked around the Old Market area while waiting on them. They had so much fun and said the concert was "amazing". They spent the night at our house and are still sleeping, imagine that :)

This card is the one Sara made me for my birthday. I had no idea she was making it. I think it turned out so great! See the little clip on the right hand side? Well the patterned paper wasn't big enough to cover the front of the card that she wanted to use so she cut a strip of it off and then cut the front of the card so it measured the same size as the big piece of the patterned paper. She attached the small strip of patterned paper to the inside back of the card and then stitched the clip onto it positioned so it would hold the card closed! Isn't that the coolest thing? The paper she used is from K&Co, the flower and the Happy Birthday rub-on from Imaginisce, and dew drops. The leaf flourish at the bottom is actually on the paper, but she used a coppery brown color to highlight it. This girl amazes me with the ideas she has. She and Ben both signed the inside and it will be cherished forever!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

What a great card and such a "forever treasure." A very clever idea, too.

I'm not sure who Sara and Ben are, but it sounds like you must've scored some big points by taking them to the concert. ;) The card she made you is adorable...and very creative!
