Happy Birthday Mitra!!

Happy Birthday Mitra!! This simply gorgeous greeting was created by Impression Obsession design team member, Melinda Doster, especially for Mitra. Isn't it beautiful? I wish you could see it in person....these pictures don't do it justice.

I love the way she designed this card! And it even has magnetic closure on it. And sparkles, too. Melinda lined the flourishes with a clear glitter pen and while I'm not sure of the names of the images used, she certainly outdid herself with this card.

(a side note to Melinda.... when I presented Mitra with your card, she LOVED it! She's very interested in the magnetic closure, too. Thank you so much for your card)

Birthday surprise for Mitra!!

Happy Birthday to Mitra, the owner of Impression Obsession. The design team decided to secretly create birthday greetings for her and post them today. Let me tell you, when I let her in on the surprise, she was tickled to death!! I think we really put a big smile on her face---a big thanks to the design team for participating and for keeping the surprise a secret! I know I was afraid to say much on our email group for fear of giving it away--LOL.

I made a peanut butter cup floral bouquet for her. The flowers were made using a scalloped circle punch and then cutting into them to make the petals, then added a Reese's pb cup for the center of the flower. They're attached to bamboo skewers and then stuck into floral foam inside the can.

I actually made her a birthday card, too, but forgot to take a picture of it before giving it to her! Duh, me--LOL....she said she'll take a picture of it and when she does, I'll post it.

Wishing you the happiest of birthdays, Mitra!!
