Birthday Funny!

>> Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Hi Stampers! 
Hope you're having a great week and I hope you enjoy this comical birthday card I have to share with you today! 



My Grandma is fun and spunky and the pose that Frisky Florence (771K) is in totally reminds me of my Grandma singing and dancing! I debated and debated on how to color her up and then I remembered that my Grandma belongs to the Red Hat Society.  I decided to use my Copic Markers to give her a purple and red outfit. However, as you can see, I failed to give her a "red hat." It's probably because I'm certain that my Grandma wears a purple hat with a big red flower in it when she goes to her meetings. I must have been thinking of her once again! 

While assembling my card front, I stamped the Large Original Plaid Background (641P) on light purple cardstock with dark purple ink to match. Then I layered it with red and a dark purple decorative border to hide the seam between the top and bottom layers of my card front. Then, I split up the Hanging Lower Birthday Greeting (1060G) to accommodate my layout. Gotta love that hilarious greeting--I know my Grandma would get a kick out of it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Smiles,
Jennifer
