Mother-in-Law's Birthday card

Hi again!   Today I have the birthday card I made for my MIL, which I also got done at the crop I went to this past weekend.  I just love the way this one turned out.

I originally cut this card from some BEEEUUUtiful K & Co. double sided cardstock at 5 1/4" x 12" to make the card 5 1/4 x 6 finished size.  I cut out the label cut with Gypsy Wanderings and just wanted to see if the cuts lined up well and was going to cut down the brown to fit the inside of the top so it would be a floral card with the brown "lining" inside the cut.  But when I laid the two pieces together and saw that brown edge I just fell in love with it!

The sentiment is from Pink By Design and originally said "Fishing you a Happy Birthday", but as you can see, I used a brush marker (Stampabilities) to only ink up part of the stamp.

The rose 3D sticker is from La Petit' and the inner mat is from Creative Memories.   Their vintage papers matched up exactly in coloring!  I just LOVE this paper and the way this card turned out! 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderfully blessed day!
