MMM It's our birthday!

Yes, it's amazing but this challenge celebrates the first birthday of Make My Monday. Our wonderful 'boss' Jacqueline has chosen the theme and weekly topics for June, which is JUNE AND ASSOCIATED EVENTS.
Not only is it our birthday but it is also Jacqueline's next Sunday, so for her topic she would like to see a
Birthday Card with Pearls, for Pearls are the birthstone for the month of June. Here is my card.
The background is a designer sheet from Artylicious. I stamped, onto a piece of white card, then cut it out with a Spellbinders die, I inked it up before removing the die with a TH Distress ink. the stamp is from Penny black - Flying Stars.I followed the lines on the image with a Quickie glue pen, put it aside to dry. When dry, I rubbed in sections over all of the design with a piece of copper foil, so the flowers are actually foiled. I am hoping it will show up when enlarged. I added the required pearls and the appropriate greeting. I am looking forward to visiting your blogs to see your interpretations of our challenge. Thanks to everyone for your support, to past and present participants.


  1. Beautiful, Caz! LOVE the monochromatic browns and the patterned paper is amazing! This is fabulous!!! :)

  2. This is really pretty, and I love what you did with the foil.
    Think I probably have some of that paper - I must admit I like their CDs.
