Birthday Blitz countdown - only 2 more to go

So I have just 2 more cards to go after this one for my dad's 80th birthday.

I used the CPS sketch this week (#249) for the basic layout.

I don't know why but I felt like making a tufted pillow card today.  I don't know if that's really what its called, but I saw something like this a month or so ago on the 'net (I think Moxie Fab World, but I can't remember right off the top of my head)

To increase the elegance I did all white.  I scored the background layer on my Scor-Pal (see Tara I do use it :) at 1" intervals going in both directions.   At each intersection I placed a half pearl from SU!

I added a plain white strip and the sentiment from Birthday Basics [PTI] to complete this weeks CPS sketch.


  1. Nice embossing and love the pearls! Great job on the challenge and thanks for playing along with us over at CPS this week!

  2. Reminds me of a beautiful quilt...I would love for you to link up with my new card making meme, 52 Card Pickup here...!
