Happy Birthday!

This is one of those cards that I played and played with - it needed something - so I added this, then that and then a little something else...... I am pleased that I finally used my CTMH hatpins on a project and I think they look okay, but I'm not as sure about the little pearls I added around the circle. Oh well, I think it is cute overall.

I have really been enjoying my new punch from SU - well it isn't new - it has been available for some time now I believe, but I just acquired it before Christmas, so it's new to me. It is the perfect size for a small sentiment. Which is great as I often design my card without thinking about my sentiment and have to add it at the last minute when there is very little space left!

I am going to enter my card in the challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday - "anything goes" as long as you stamp on your project - which I found via Laurel.

Hope you have a great Monday! I have decided that it is going to be a good day even though it is Monday because a) it is a PA day and I don't have to pack lunches and b) I have cancelled my three day out-of-town work trip this week and get to stay home - well I do have to go to work, but locally! Hooray!

C ya later,

Shanna :)


  1. Your card looks great. I love the parenthesis. All your pearls are on the right side of the card...that is what is bugging you. Put a couple of pearls in the bottom left corner and I am sure that will make a difference.

  2. Great card, really pretty with all the pearls!!

  3. Hi Narna!
    Absolutely LOVE this card. What a stunner! I love the bracket and the pearls around the circle look lovely. I am also NEEEEDING that SU punch!
    Well enjoy your week at home! I, on the other hand must go and make packed lunches for tomorrow. What shall I put in them? It all gets a bit samey after a while......
    I need to email you but probably won't be tonight. I'm feeling a bit run down so after a quick blog catch up I'm going to hit the hay!
