Sew Happy For Your Birthday!

I happened upon Cosmo Cricket's 'Material Girl' in the clearance at Archiver's and snatched that kit right up. My mother, my grandmother, and a goodly number of people I know are quilters and sewers. First up, Grandma. For whatever reason, her birthday was not on my calendar, so thankfully I mentioned my score to mom who got me right on it!

The layout is from Seize the Sketch #4. This is a card where I actually did an inside! I didn't take a pic, but it's a sewing machine stamp and the words 'For Your Birthday'. I think she's going to like it.

Supplies: cream card; yellow paper and sticker from Material Girl; red button paper from DCWV 'Crafty Stack'; red ribbon and Geranium marker from American Crafts; Stampendous 'Typewriter Wishes'; My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Mabel 'So Sweet' stamps; buttons, Tsukineko VersaMagic 'Pink Grapefruit' inside.
