Elly & Friends Birthday Card - MMSC22

 Today is my Grandson's first Birthday and my daughter & I are leaving in two hours for a 5 hour road trip with a 3 month old & a 2 1/2 yr. old. YIKES!!!  We are going to Pittsburgh for Kolton's Birthday Party. They guys are coming out tomorrow. SMART!!!

So, here is one of the cards I made for him. I used the Midnight Madness Sketch 22 Challenge for the base of this card. The stamped image turned out too big to follow the sketch exactly. But, it's close.

The paper pack and the Happy 1st Birthday stamps are from Close to my Heart.
I used dew drops in the corners and matching embroidery floss for the hand stitching around the card.

Another super sweet card using one of my favorite stamp sets! Again, your color choices and design are spot on!

So how was the loooong ride with the little ones? Hopefully they slept most of the way! I remember those days...
