Fall Birthday for Another Niece!

This card was made for my niece on my husband's side of the family, and it was actually my final birthday card to make for the month of October . . . Yippee Skippee!  I barely had time to get it done and mailed on time, because I had to get Halloween cards made and mailed too.  I definitely could not get it posted, so I decided it would have to wait for November, as well, to be put into my blog when my blog and I were less busy!   As long as it gets there, all is good, right?!  But, of course, the card was mailed timely so my wishes would not be late!

I thank my sister, Heidi Gonzales (My Lil' Scrap Corner) for the original inspiration for this card and the card kit pieces, to which I added.  My card kind of took on a life of its own.  I decided it needed an Early Espresso cardstock base and a border strips under the ribbon embellishment in the dark brown as well.  The sentiment was changed from Gratitude to one fitting for a birthday, and rhinestones were needed to give it a little bling.  I am pretty pleased with my modifications and the changes in the card, which I feel did not take away from its original design, but rather enhanced it.  I hope my niece, Sarah, likes it too!
