21st Birthday


Well, I finally made my son's 21st birthday card which I had been struggling with. I used a stamp by Inkadinkado which has an appropriate message, I think, for someone starting out their adult life. Funny thing is, I knew it needed something around the edges, so I decided to do some paper piercing. That wasn't enough, so I decided to do some stitching. I hate sewing, and as I was doing it I kept thinking here I was sewing a card easily enough, but my husband's shirt has been sitting on top of my sewing basket waiting for a button to be sewn on for about five months.

Cool! I think all the metal embellishments are so much fun but I rarely use mine. Yours is an inspiration to me.
