Birthday for The Boss

When there is a birthday at work, we start our work day by celebrating the birthday with cards and snacks. I have been making my own cards for about 2 years now. This is a card I made my boss last month. It took me 3 hours to make this card because I just could not get it to look right! I used my Cuttlebug and Nestability to cut out the window and to make the window edging. I stamped the cattail weeds, cut them out and glued them down. For the cattail ends I used a slot punch and glued them down on the weeds. Dragonfly was stamped and embossed on vellum. I have popdots under the wings to keep them up off the card. I used sponge to color the sunset, stampd the weeds and used the slot punch again to make the cattails. Supplies *Martha Stewart Border Punch * Cuttlebug *Nestability *DragonFly stamps unknown *Hot Off The Press Word & Scroll stamp *Cardstock: Unknown Following From Stampin Up *Slot Punch *Inspired By Nature Stamp *Classic Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Yoyo Yellow

This is gorgeous, Netta. It should be published. I peeked in & saw it when you first posted it, but didn't have time to comment and this card definitely deserves a comment. : )
