City Crafter Challenge #90

Our lovely hostess Cheryl
of the City Crafter Challenge Blog, has given a challenge of "Save The Date"... to use either a day, a month, a year or a combination of all three somewhere on your project. 
Seeing that phrase "Save The 
Date" made me think on my son's wedding last year, but then I thought of a date fast approaching that I haven't done anything about... my sister's birthday!!! Yikes!!! It being so soon after Christmas, I am always pressed for what it get her... and here I haven't even made her card. So I jumped right on that idea... at least I would have the card done and if inspiration doesn't strike in the next day or two, I can always tuck in a great gift card (who doesn't love that?).
Here's my entry...


I had bought the Prima
8x8 paper pad and tiles of the Printery Collection while in that fabulous scrapbooking super store in Tennessee in December. Now was the time to break it out. Cream cardstock is my card base and Vintage Photo my Distress Ink of choice.


Hmmmm... seems I remember
a gorgeous handmade flower in my Tecolote Pixie Dust Paperie Kit. Yep... perfect match as is the crinkled seam binding.


Some Rock Candy Stickles
and mini jewels from the TPC Studio So Delish Collection top off this birthday card except for one more important thing...


THE DATE!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs!
Linda
