Happy Birthday Nancy!! 

Smiley from millan.net

I love, love, looove this incredibly talented and utterly gorgeous chick!  Nancy and I had a good ol' time at CHA this summer trying to "outshop" each other at the Papertrey Booth, and boy was it tough - I kept trying to intimidate her with my impressive height, but she wouldn't budge.. (still, I'm pretty sure I won but she'll never admit to it!)Smiley from millan.net

Anyhoo, for her birthday today I made this card using some of my favorite PTI stuff because I KNOW she loves this stuff at least half as much as I do!!

I used the gorgeous Tea for Two stamp set, paired with the sentiment from Butterfly Kisses, and the Fine Linen and Ocean Tides Cardstock, which are just divine!  I embossed my Fine Linen panel using my Square Lattice Embossing Folder from SU!, and added some Vintage Photo Distress ink to all my panels.  I added a Scarlet Jewel Vintage button onto an Ocean Tides Bow using Jute Button Twine, and finished up my card with some "sea" pearls from Kaiserkraft.

Now let's keep this party going and hop on over to the lovely Karen G.'s blog to see what stunning creation she has made for Nancy!
