Moxie Fab Damask & Brocade Challenge

But first and foremost,  a big shout out to my very special friend Lisa, who celebrates her birthday today!  I am so lucky to have been able to spend some time with her today, we all went out to dinner and then came back for some cake at her house!  Happy Birthday Lisa! 


And for her birthday I made her this card, a while ago actually, and I was trying to go with the Moxie Fab theme for their damask & brocade challenge.



And funny enough, I actually "stole" the idea of the bird from THIS card that Lisa made a while back too. I love that birdie die from Memory Box and it is really perfect for this technique.

And don't you love those pearls from Michaels!


Here is a side view so you can see the bird better.



Final picture of the day, this is what my daughter had to sleep in last night...the packing has officially begun!


I hope you are all having a great weekend!

Hi Bren! What a wonderful photo of the three of you - that one will be treasured, I'm sure! You all look so happy and carefree - sounds like you shared a perfect day with Lisa for her b-day. Love your card! It would qualify for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge too (using bling.) Good luck with all that packing - hope it goes smoothly! Hugs! :)
