Happy Birthday, Fatima!

Yes, it's Friday! Here's a card I made for my sister-in-law, Fatima. She's celebrating her birthday tomorrow. I hate that she won't receive the card on time.

The design is clean and simple, which I love. I had a hard time stamping the "happy birthday" sentiment. This stamp is my nemesis. It's such a thin font, that stamping and heat embossing it was frustrating. I re-did it 4 times! The rest of the card took about 10 minutes to assemble. I used the layout on
these cards from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog for my card. I love that blog! Have a great weekend everyone.

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: All Holidays (SU!)
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Pink Flamingo DSP (SU!)
Ink: Versamark
Tools: embossing gun
Other: white embossing powder, rhinestones (Michael's), foam tape

Glad to hear I'm not the only one that has issues with this stamp image! Very frustrating, isn't it? I love your card though! Way to make that designer paper the focal point!
