It is a new month and birthdays are a'plenty in my family for March. Here is my first card for my sister-in-law's birthday (which is today, March 1).

Materials used:
6-1/2 X 5" Ivory card stock, opening at bottom.
Plain green card stock, rounded corners and edged in purple.
Purple ribbon that bends around back of green card stock.
Bottom embossing is A2 border Organic Florish (#37-1922) using my Cuttlebug; I've colored the florish by brushing Color Box Cat's Eyes Chalk Inks over the top, using Wisteria and Lime Pastel colors.
Image is Stampabilities House Mouse Grape Dreams with Mudpie (#HMGR1003).
In coloring Mudpie, I used Copics Markers, #BV00, C3, E33, G07, R20, V17 and YG03. I love to work with glitter glue, so I added Stickle's Firefly and Stickle's Glitz Grape. As a final touch, I added two Amber blings.

Simple, yet enjoyable!

Keep checking back as I have more cards to do this month for mom, sister, brother, nephew and several friends. If we continue to have snow, I may have more time to do cards.

Since our family has Irish background through our mom, maybe I can get a St. Patrick's Day card or more done. With Easter coming in April, hopefully, I can get a head start on those as well. Then there is Mother's Day in May with birthdays in both months. Boy, am I going to be busy!

Catch you all later.
