Happy Birthday to the Officer!

While I missed the party where Jackie (often referred to as Jacque so as not to be confused with our OTHER Jackie who just HAD a birthday!) was given the nomiker Officer, I can certainly understand how she got it! We all love Jackie very much, and are therefore throwing her a Twilight Birthday hop. So if you didn't arrive here from Danielle's blog, please head back to Frances so you can start from the beginning.

It being a Twilight hop, I brought my date, Carlisle (because all the good looking young ones were taken, and I was teased for saying I would bring Jasper...so I thought I'd go for Carlisle instead - besides I always wanted to date a doctor!!!) And my card adhere's to the rules of being black and white with some red. I thought Jackie might like some roses for her birthday, and since as usual I am doing this last minute (something Jackie and I have in common!!) I also kept it simple!
The roses are from the Sealed With a Kiss set, which I think is so very versatile! I stamped them with Stazon and colored them with SU! markers (because that is what I have unpacked right now!) All the paper is from my scrap folders (yeah for me!) and I thought the shimmery white would add a little extra class. I mean, I am dating a doctor, right? I embossed the white layer with my SU! embossing plates, then mounted it on real read, then the black card base. The sentiment was punched with the word window punch, then mounted on some real red that was cut with the ribbon tags trio shapabilities die...which was attached to the card with some great polka dotted ribbon.The image was punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch, and mounted on a scalloped circle of real red. Overall, a nice simple design...just my kinda card!

Now head on over to Prettie Mama Christie for our next stop on this Twilight birthday tour, and enjoy the scenery!! When you're done, be sure to leave some love for the Birthday Girl!! Have a great day everyone.
