For You, Joyce!

Well, we're halfway through this crazy week. We got more snow last night through this morning, and it would be a great time if I didn't have to go to work. But, that's why I drive a truck.

Today I wanted to wish a happy birthday to one of my fellow Papertrey Princesses, Joyce. Happy Birthday, Joyce! Her blog is here, so make sure you stop by and wish her a great day! :)

Here's a little card I put together for you, Joyce! I used the current Embellish Magazine challenge as my starting point.

I used the fancy lace stamp from Faux Fun, stamped on a diagonal and then embossed. The sentiment, from Little Box Labels, was also embossed. I pleated and stitched some turquoise ribbon and then matted the brown layer with white and pink. I love how detailed the lace stamp is!

I hope your birthday is wonderful Joyce! So glad to be a part of the Princesses group with you!

Stop back later today, as I'm putting the finishing touches on my masking tutorial.

Until then!
