Let Beauty Surround You

Happy Sunday!  Today was a beautiful day!  Praising God in the morning and crafting in the afternoon!  How much better can it get??

Today's card is a birthday card for our oldest granddaughter, Nevaeh that is turning 8 this week.  It's an unusual birthday card because Nevaeh has received her "dream present" for her birthday.  She finally received a bunny. She's been asking her Mom and Dad for one for a couple of years now.  She got it early (just a few days ago) and is absolutely thrilled!  That is all she can talk about and the only thing she wants from us are bunny supplies!  Did you know that they sell bunny harnesses?  I bought her one today so she can walk Almond, Yes Almond is her bunny's name! 

Ok, well since you now have the background info on this card, I'll show it to you :)
Ok, so I really didn't think that a "Happy Birthday" sentiment would look right on the front of this card so I went with the "let beauty surround you" sentiment that came with the set.  So instead of using a regular background DP, I made the background by stenciling a number collage on white cardstock using Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  Oh and the super cool thing is that I just bought the number collage template on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $2.99.  I love a bargain!!!  Ok, so then I stamped the Happy Birthday Sentiment on the Inside.  This is definitely not my typical birthday card but I think considering the circumstances, she and Almond will love it! 

Here's a picture of Nevaeh..
Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of Almond yet!  :(
I've entered my Let Beauty Surround You card on 613 Avenue Create Anything Goes/Use a Sentiment
I used:  Unity Stamp Co. "Let Beauty Surround You" Itty Bitty Stamp Set, SU Cardstock, Copics, TCW 6x6" Stencil Template, Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

Have a wonderful week and remember to Let Beauty Surround You!

Love & Blessings,  Tina
