Happy Birthday, Sweetie!

Hola! Today is a special day in our house; my Sweetie and I are celebrating our shared birthday. We didn't plan anything big, since yesterday I was sick. I had a fever for most of the day. The only other symptom was my ears were more clogged than usual (I have seasonal allergies). I woke up fine this morning. It there such a thing as a 1-day flu? Weird.

The guys and I had an early dinner and thanks to The Pioneer Woman, I ordered the best mojito! She showed some photos yesterday and I guess I had mojitos on the brain.

I used the colors from Kristina's Readers' Choice Color Inspiration No. 3 to create this card. I also drew design inspiration from a card on page 11 of the Stampin' Up Summer Mini Catalog.


Card Ingredients (All Stampin' Up Except Where Noted)
Stamps: All Holidays, Butterfly Prints, I {Heart} Hearts, Background Basics: Woodgrain (Papertrey Ink)

Tools: Big Shot with Fillable Frames #3 die (Papertrey Ink), heat gun, Tim Holtz Distressor
Other: Chocolate Chip/Vanilla ribbon, clear embossing powder, Old Olive button, foam tape (3M)
