I forgot to get my card out in the mail but figured I could at least post it here. I cut down an extra banner I had left over when I was working on my spooky banner and stamped it with flowers in several shades of pink. I wanted to give them some dimension so I sprayed them with alcohol from a Spritzer and let them run a little bit. I learned this from my mistake making my Joy banner (which you will see tomorrow on my blog!)
Then I stamped the flowers on Very Vanilla and cut out the centers. I peeled back the edges to make the flowers more dimensional and put pearls in the centers. Then I made a quick little banner to put the 40 on it from Outline Alphabet and inked Bring On from Bring On The Cake using my marker, which you could see if I hadn't covered it up with my logo!

Being a sister is a complicated relationship. You are close enough to be honest which sometimes mean you fight because you don't have the barriers we have with friends. But your level of forgiving and forgetting is higher than in any friendship and what makes you mad today makes you smarter for tomorrow. I have been a tough little sister most of my life but I have always loved her big. My sister is an amazing woman and I hope that her forties bring her as much magic as Disneyland and even more Happily Ever Afters.
Have a craftastic day,
