One of my sister-in-laws has a birthday coming up, so I spent some time in my crafty space putting together a special card for her. I have a bag I've been putting all my paper scraps in and that is where I started. After sorting out the patterned papers by color, I chose some of my favorites. Then I found a larger scrap of paper for the background. I have been using my embossing folders more lately and I love the added dimension. The sentiment is one from Verve. After assembling the bulk of the card, I found a few other scraps to use for cutting flowers and leaves to put the finishing touches on the card. This is one of those cards that I am so pleased with the final result.
This is the card I used for inspiration.

For the little boy cards, I actually cut into a full 12x12 piece of paper. That's what happens when you have the perfect paper to go with a construction stamp set.

I created this card for a young man that turned 18 recently. The verse was fitting as he is a young man that loves and lives for the Lord. For my background, I inked the embossing folder before sending it through the Cuddlebug. I like how it turned out. The leaves were ones I had cut for some earlier cards, but they added just the right touch for this card.

My parents are celebrating 48 years of marriage this month. I used the current VLV sketch to make a card to send them. Since I had everything out, I made a second card to add to my stash.
