Hello, friends! I have an extra special post today to celebrate the birthday of a talented designer and all-around fabulous lady, Tracey McNeely!
Lots of people want to wish Tracey a happy birthday, so our friend and fellow 12 Kits of Occasions designer, Joyce, is hosting a Linky party over on her blog. Feel free to join in with your birthday wishes for Tracey by linking up there!
I hope Tracey doesn't think my card for her is too masculine. :) I wanted to incorporate an autumn theme and keep the design very clean and graphic, as Tracey's own designs tend to have lots of white space and perfect stamping.
My favorite part of this card is the stitching for the leaf veins, which adds just the right amount of texture to otherwise flat images.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Baja Breeze), Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream), A Muse Studio (woodgrain)
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Leafy Greens), Clearly Besotted (Tag Along)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Chocolate Chip)
Other: sequins, thread
I hope you have a wonderful birthday full of all of your favorite things, Tracey! Enjoy your virtual party!
