Dreams Come True

Happy Sunday, everyone! I'm still recuperating from my back injury...it's making it hard to get creative. Hope my mojo returns soon...got lots of work to do!

I did manage to make one card I'm somewhat happy with...only took me the whole weekend to finish it, too.

I played along with PDCC66...not a big fan of purple, but I think this lilac shade is pretty.
And here's what I came up...can never have too many birthday cards in the stash, can you? 

I used my new Square Lattice embossing folder...blame Laurie for using it on so many gorgeous cards...I had to break down & get it.

Hope you like it!

Stamps: Birthday Basics (PTI)
Paper: Basic Black, Lavender Lace, PTI white
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: PTI butterfly die, SU Square Lattice embossing folder, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Kaisercraft pearls, button (stash)

The colors purple/black/gray automatically remind me of funeral. I don't know why- but those are the ones I go for when I need to do a sympathy card. :)
