A big wish for my big sis




I used the current Card Patterns sketch to make my sister's birthday card. I'm also entering this card in the Moxie Fab 'Gray is the new Black' challenge.  I went with a soft gray and purple color scheme, which I love at the moment.

 I usually pick on her age pretty good because she's 10 years older than me but I decided to be nice this year and make her something simple and classy. 
The lacey circle is textured, which you can't really see in the photo.  The flower was made with my Cricut using  the Plantin School Book cartridge.


Here's a link to the card pattern and the decorative mats in PDF.

  1. Looks great and she will love it!! I totally know what you mean about the gray and purple ......I bought 5 shirts at the Gap yesterday in that same color palette ....... LOVE IT!!! You have inspired me to get my booty using my Cricut again and I did not but the numbers. I have to get in the mind of using my stamps and cricut together and I really should get some software other then DS so I can cut out things like my YOF and such vs the dies.

  4. Gorgeous!! I'm loving this color combo! I haven't gotten LM before though - not sure it's my type of color, but since I'm a completist, I'm going to need to get it!
    Ooh, I just got an idea to do a latte type card with this...cute little coffee sleeve on the front...hmmm, now what stamps do I have to complete this? None! I may have to go shopping and blame it all on you!! :o)
