My Embossed Elements Winner for June

Hello and Happy Thursday! I'm announcing my Embossed Elements giveaway winner today. The brand-new Cloudy Sky Embossing Folder goes to lucky #23, which is Nikki C.! Congratulations, Nikki! Please email me (you'll find my email address on my "Complete Profile" page--see the right-hand sidebar under my picture) with your snail mail mailing address so I can get this embossing folder sent out to you ;).

My newest embossing folder from the DeNami Design store is the Butterflies in Corner embossing folder. My 15YO daughter ooooo-ed and aaaaaah-ed over this one, so I just had to use it to make her a card. It's a birthday card; well, actually it is her half-birthday card. My sweet thing was born on Christmas Eve. The first few years we celebrated her big day on the actual day, but it was so hard to make it special with Christmas just right around the corner. So starting around her sixth birthday, we asked her if she'd like to celebrate with cake and presents on her half-birthday, so she could spread out the celebrating more. And we've been doing it ever since! So this is the card she'll get from us when we celebrate her half birthday this weekend. My kids' last day of school was Tuesday--June 24!! So celebrating her half birthday is a great way to kick off the summer :) Here's how her half-birthday card turned out:


I used a sweet stamp from the Fancy Flutters set, a sentiment from the Thoughtful Greetings set, a Crystal Lacquer Pearl Pen, and some pink baker's twine.

I think my daughter will love how it turned out!!

Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit today!
Emily

Awww...that is so sweet! I love the pretty embossing and the little twine and butterfly are perfect to enhance and not overshadow it.
Happy 1/2 birthday to you sweet daughter! :)

Oh wow--what a gorgeous card, Emily! I know your daughter will be thrilled with it! Thinking I "need" that embossing folder! What a great idea to celebrate her 1/2 birthday. It is hard to have a birthday & Christmas close together. My hubby has a Dec. birthday, too.

This is so sweet, Emily! That butterfly embossing folder is cool...never saw it before. You've shown so many new-to-me designs through DeNami. You must have quite a stash! Aren't you GLAD you bought the Big Shot??
