SEM Challenge

I finally decided to join the Scrapping Everyday Miracles challenge!  Go here for the sketches - either a card or a layout.  And here is my card:
 The scrap twist was to use a homemade flower.  I crocheted the flower I used.

I had a friend see a card on facebook that she wanted (my sister-in-law made it).  When she found out it was sold, she said I should make her one.  Here is the one my SIL made (she's a Stampin Up Demonstrator if you need to order anything):

And here's the one I made:
Then she tells me it's not a b-day card!  So I had to cut it down and remove the banner.  I think mine turned out cute.  Dina's is a lot cuter though!  Love her cloud embossing folder.

Oh, I thought you might get a kick at the banner when I first put it together:
Um, yes, it's backwards...maybe I figured most people are counting their birthdays backwards.  Or maybe I just didn't think it through!  Now it lays on my desk waiting for a real b-day card to be attached to.

Hope to get some more cards done today.  Have a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping, Susan
