Happy Valentine’s Day. My husband and I did a mini celebration yesterday, which usually consists of swapping cards and a nice family dinner.

It is also Mojo Monday. I am feeling under the weather today, maybe that accounts for my very green card.
My little 6x6 stacks of Memory Box papers are sitting on my desk, so they were the first thing I grabbed when considering ideas in my head. I did not realize how green it was till I had it all put together.

I edged all my paper bits with Evergreen Versa Color, I embossed Happy birthday with Forest Green embossing powder. I glued all my layers then tried unsuccessfully to make a bow with grosgrain ribbon for 20 mins before I decided to make a flower out of it. That was no easier but I did make it happen. I topped it with a Hero Arts Gem, which I also used inside my circle.

Supplies: Cream and green cardstock, Designer Paper-Memory Box, Spellbinders Nestabilites Standard and Lacey circles, Stamp-it- Birthday Wishes, Hero Arts-Gems, Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin’ Up- Embossing powder.



  1. Are you feeling green, lil Sister, like green around the gills? Awwwww, well you still managed to produce this lovely card. I don't think I could do that when I was down and out!
