Trendy Twine's Birthday Celebration Blog Hop

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Trendy Twine's Birthday Celebration Weekend.
As you know Yesterday was Lesley's Birthday and Today is her Mom's Birthday, so some of "US" her Awesome Design Team has made her Mom a card to make her Birthday Celebration Complete.  
Now if you're here from Yvonne's blog, then you're in the right direction, but if you're just passing thru you may want to start at the Trendy Twine Blog because you don't want to miss out on the Blog Candy.
Here is what I made for Lesley's Mom:
I created this sweet birthday card from a craft cardstock base, rounded the corners and inked the edges with Raspberry distress ink. I cut the patterned paper slightly smaller and repeated the process of rounding the corners, inking the edges, then glued it to the base. I cut a frame from brown glitter paper on my Cricut and used it to highlight the words on the card. The frame is popped up on foam dots for dimension. I embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment in white on the bottom corner of the card. To top it off a bow made from Posy Trendy Twine.

You have made it to the end of the hop!
