Back in the Craft Room

Well everyone, I think I have won the battle of the flu and am now out of the danger zone.  My energy levels are back and I can't get enough of my craft-room and all the fun little gadgets it holds.  Now after all the Christmas and Birthday gifts can get the appropriate attention, I feel the need to purge but I really don't want to....who can part with their gadgets, flowers, ribbons and would be a crime I tell you (even if they're everywhere!).

Well after giving the purge idea a great deal of thought, I figured that this was one event I would choose to procrastinate on and move to the next project which would be more fun and besides I had a lot of catching up to do.  To start my catch-up routine I created a birthday card for a very dear friend who has been there to guide me along the way after my mom's death.  She knits, sews, cross-stitch and all sorts of things with material so I think she is going to appreciate this card I made for her which was inspired by Linda Duke.  Thanks Linda.

The card base is 5x7 and was made using Kraft paper.  The designer paper is Authentique and the cream card-stock I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I used a Martha Stewart punch around the border to add a little flair for the eyes.  The flowers and the lace is Wild Orchids and the pearls are from Prima.

On the banner on the left side I plan to stamp Happy Birthday, but I want this certain stamp that I know I have but hadn't found it at the time of this photo (to much stuff).

I want to enter this card in just a couple of challenges:
