Impress Happy Birthday & Happy Birthday Mom!

Today's card is another one that is being sold at Splurge in Greenwich at my friend Sonia's store.  I've seen this layout a bunch of times on SCS and other blogs and I wanted to try my hand at it!  I just LOVE how other's cards have come out and I 'think' I achieved something similar.
I embossed my Impress stamp with white powder and then I took my white pen and ruler and drew the rectangle around the card. Added a PTI sentiment and some bling and then some a layer of pale yellow cardstock.   I will definitely use this method again and although it takes some patience to draw the rectangle, I like the result.

Today is also my mom's birthday! She's a 69 today!  I know she won't get upset at putting her age on the blog because she, like me, feel like age is only a number.  So, here's wishing my mom, Lois, a wonderful & happy birthday! We're having some family members over for dinner and cake tonight to celebrate!!
Thanks for poppin' in today!

Happy Birthday, Maria's mom!

Love what you did with the Impress flower--this is definitely going in my google notebook to CASE later!

Did you see Susan's Simplicity blog where she made a template for her rectangle frame? Seems like it could be a time saver if you did a lot of them!

Lovely. :) Just goes to show you don't need a lot of embellishments to make a catchy card. :)
