Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone!  Happy Valentine's Day!  The boys have the day off today but my daughter doesn't.  I really love days when I don't have to do my hair!  Those days are so few and far in between.  I thought today I could just sit around drinking coffee and not worry about getting all presentable until I realized oh, gotta get my daughter from school and then take her to her after school activity.  Shucks!  Gotta go blow dry my hair and get out of my pjs!

Anyway, just wanted to share the birthday card I made for Renate'.  The DT girls over at Yumi and Fumi had an awesome celebration for her.  Check out all of the posts

This is the front of my card with Summer Yumi.  The bow is mostly there to keep the card closed and look pretty at the same time.

The card opens up like so.  In the middle is Lawn Fawn's banner and sentiment.  I used the banner die to cut it out as well.  On the far right is Summer Fumi.  I also used some sequins that I love.  The hardest thing was having to fold Yumi and Fumi's hands so that they look like they are holding the banner.  I really didn't like having to bend the images even if it was just a tiny part.

Happy Birthday, Renate'!  Sounds like you had a wonderful day!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
