Happy Birthday Sarah!

Here's a card I've been working on for a few days for a fellow Seriously Creative DT member, Sarah. Now if you think you're having deja vu, you are because this card is very similar to the last one I made! I kept my Kraftin' Kimmie Roxy stamp and MME papers out, and built on the design of the last card. I was pretty content to work on this card for a while because I got to use my new Lifestyle Crafts dies and my iRock tool. Check out that bling! You could light the northern night skies with this puppy! I didn't have enough matching cardstock or patterned paper to make a card base with, so I inked and stamped up some plain cream stuff with the matching MME stamp set and some Broken China Distress Ink. And then on the inside:
Voila! Another Roxy Rolla! I thought that turned out pretty cool, but I don't know that I'll do it all the time, as it's a lot of work, but seeing that Sarah got shingles over the Christmas holidays, I figured she deserved a little something extra! Oh yeah, and it's her 30th, too, so that's a pretty big deal, right? (Just because I don't want to even think about my 30th, ahem, Jason, doesn't mean I can't appreciate the fact that it's a big milestone for other people!) Anyway, Happy Birthday for Saturday, Sarah, hope you get some wonderful scrappy goodies, and I'll get your card to you soon!

Well, I missed the sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, but I can still enter this card over at Kraftin' Kimmie. This week's prompt is to "shape up" and use 3 or more shapes on your card. I've used a rectangle for the card base, dies cut scallop squares, and flowers (I hope flowers count as a shape!) Thanks for looking!
