.....................Happy Birthday - It's Chemistry

How challenging to create this card as I wanted (in a subtle sort of way) to pay tribute to my grandson's interest in chemistry and math. The background paper I printed from an advertisment when I googled "Periodic Table" I also found a bit of design that had beakers and flasks so found a place to use that too. The "elements" gold, silver and copper found their spot on a bit of May Arts ribbon. Once the Happy Birthday was embossed on the Spellbinder oval the whole card was put together and I moved to the card inside. There I cut a piece of "birthday" paper to line the inside of the card and hand wrote a personal birthday message.

A Sympathy Card - Departing Life

A little out of the ordinary expression of sympathy. The highlight on this card was the use of Swarovski crystals. "With Sympathy" was stamped and embossed on a Spellbinder die cut.
