Happy Birthday to You

Hello there!  I have been looking at the Off The Wall Craftiness Challenges for a while...and this week decided it was time to play along.  I didn't think I had any cameos, but I found this fun little cameo button in my stash.   I also pulled out an embossing folder that I haven't used in entirely too long.  I love the look of embossing so I need to do it more often! An added bonus for this card is that it also qualifies for the current Moxie Fab Challenge....Appearances of Cameos!

This card is in the mail for my nana's 92nd birthday! 
Ingredients:  Paper Company Red Cardstock:  Stampin' Up Very Vanilla Cardstock and Ribbon and Basic Black Ink; PTI Damask Design Stamps

Hope you like my take on this fun inspiration photo!
And all you blog readers out there...be safe...there is so much horrible weather with the snow storms in the states and the cyclones and flooding in Australia, please be careful!

That cameo button is perfect for this! And how do you always get your bows tied so evenly? They always look perfect. Stay warm out there!

this is so beautiful and elegant, Lynn :) When I first saw the post title, I thought you had a Groundhog birthday in your family today :) Tony turns the big 5-0 today :) I can't believe the snow some places are getting. We don't get THAT much thank goodness. As much as I would like a snow day now and then, I'm not sure it's worth the pain of all the snow. Hope all is well weather wise your way...that Groundhog better NOT see his shadow! lol

Question: do you stamp before or after you emboss? It looks so perfect!

Lynn! Oh my. This is soo pretty! I love love the embossing (I'm addicted I tell 'ya!) I'm so glad you played along with OTWC this week and yes you should put it over on the Moxie Fab challenge too! That button steals the show!

Yes, snow about 9 inches yesterday but today the roads were just fine and made it to work without problems. My boss even bought us pizza for lunch and gave us $20 thanking us for making it into work on time!
