It is my gorgeous MIL's Birthday today and that meant I had to pull out all the stops and make a card as gorgeous as she is!

I recently had the honor of attending not one, but TWO classes by my very talented friend, Teneale Williams.  I certainly learnt a lot of design tips from her!  Teneale LOVES layers, and she also loves to sponge her artwork too (a girl after my own heart!).  So I figured I would put what I learnt to good use.

I absolutely love how this card has turned out.  It really took me out of my comfort zone with the use of all that DSP, but I couldn't be happier with the end result.  Very different from my usual card - but I love it!

Card Stock:  Island Indigo, So Saffron, Very Vanilla
Inks:  Crumb Cake, Island Indigo
DSP:  Tea for Two
Stamps:  Make a Wish,  Established Elegance, French Foliage
Accessories:  Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Linen Thread, Vintage Faceted Buttons, Sponges, Dimensionals, SMJ


  1. Beautiful Paula. I have this paper but haven't used it yet - I may just have to cut into it. TFS

  2. Paula, its just lovely and I can see the Teneale influence there lol.

    I am sure your MIL will just love it.

  3. Gorgeous you clever girl, your Mother-inlaw will love it.

  4. love it, wish Pauline happy birthday from us too

  5. It's gorgeous Paula, you have done a lovely job, l'm sure MIL will think it's pretty spesh!
