I love these sentiments from Verve! They are so much fun! I just won this set last week!

The background of the gray piece is the new Music IP from PTI! I just smeared black ink all over it and then ran it through my Big Shot! I know I am going to use that IP alot! :)

Amy I hope you have a fantastic birthday!! I miss you! I am so lucky to an amazing friend like you!!  We need a stamping day soon!!

Don't forget to stop by my friends blogs to see some more Birthday creations!!

LOVE the color combo and that sentiment is great, too! Fancy-shmancy with the swirl of rhinestones!

Lindsay said...

What a sweet thing to do for your friend Laurie! This card is gorgeous! I love the colors and if I had a crank die cut machine I would get that IP stat! Awesome work girl!

Love this card!! I truly love the sentiment too...so girly and elegant. I'll have to go check that out. I haven't used my PTI music impression plate yet but it looks lovely with this card.

Kathy said...

The colors are so pretty! I heart those Verve sentiments stamps too.
Happy Birthday to Amy!

Amy said...

Oh Laurie! We have so much in common! I am just blown away by your thoughtfullness for my birthday! You really poured on the stuff I LOVE on cards.....MY favorite colours, stamping a sentiment over the image, and the letterpress technique! Wowzers...such a beautiful card! I am so glad to have roomed with you and Jen that year at the TAC seminar! I remember when we discovered that we all were secretly LOVING PTI. hehe I can't even imagine where we'd be now if we were still "there"! :)
I so enjoy our stamping time get-togethers and need to plan the next one! Thanks so much for sending such great birthday wishes my way today! Did you stay awake to watch Eclipse?

Just gorgeous Laurie! What a beautiful stamp set and winning it makes it even sweeter!! Amy is a lucky girl to have sweet friends like you all :)

Cathy Weber said...

This is a really pretty card with so many great details. The impression plate is perfect with those pretty pearls. Very pretty card for Amy. I can see she loved it by her comments above.

Christine said...

BEAUTIFUL! Happy Bday Amy--sounds like you have some pretty special friends.

Dana said...

Oh, Laurie! Another stunning beauty!! I'm always SO jealous when you get your PTI stuff so early!! (I live in Canada and wait at least a week longer than US residents...)

Jen Carter said...

This is gorgeous! Love the colors and the music IP and the bling too! That sentiment is beautiful as well (but I'm pretending I didn't see it and like it so much, LOL!). Very, very pretty!

Lee Anne said...

I just ordered the Woodgrain IP and can't wait to try this technique. Thanks for the inspiration! My favorite thing about any of your cards is always the bow. They are perfect!

Janelle said...

Beautiful card, Laurie. The music impression looks great and I love how you stamped the sentiment over the flower image. So, so pretty!

Wendy said...

Gorgeous card, love the colors. Such a pretty birthday card for your friend.

Debbie Gaydos said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I didn't have very good results with the IP, was a bit disappointed. But I haven't tried the inking it up technique, I will definitely give that a try! :)

Angela K said...

Very pretty!

Katie {choc0holic} said...

I think I see this color combination more around Halloween..but I love what you've done with it here! Yet another absolutely perfect card!
