Sister-in-Law Birthdays Begin for 2013!

I have a total of seven sister-in-laws!  I'm sure someone else on the planet has me beat, but that's a lot to be sure.  Their birthdays start in May and go through October; therefore, there will always be at least one sister-in-law birthday card for each month for six months of the year!  I never have the excuse that I have no birthday card to make that is for sure.  I only have one brother, so only one of the seven falls on my side of the family...the other six belong to my husband's side of the family!  

My first sister-in-law birthday card to start off each year is in May and is for my brother's wife, Diane.  This year, I made her a "flower" card, featuring a stamp that allows the two-step stamping technique.  I then cut the completed stamped image out with a Spellbinder Label die, and finally, I sponged its surface lightly around the edges before removing the Spellbinders die.  I love the white edge this leaves around the sponged image, almost making it a frame.  I hope Diane liked her card.

Recipe:  SU Stamp: Flower Fancy (ret.), SU Cardstock: Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze.  Pattern: scrap. SU Ink: Marine Mist, Garden Green, Baja Breeze (sponging).  Spellbinder die: Labels Three. Ribbons: 3/4" White ruffled organza, 3/8" Marine Mist satin-edge organza. Turquoise rhinestones.
