Happy Birthday Laura!

It's Laura's birthday today!!!

Laura who you ask?  Well....THE Laura who keeps all of us crazy Stampendous design team members on track.  She is amazingly supportive and is like the house mom in our big crazy sorority house!  She keeps track of a million details and manages all of our crazy personalities like a pro! 

I made this card for Laura for her birthday (and yes Laura....it should be arriving in your office in the box I mailed you yesterday!)

As I am looking at these pictures I realized that I meant to add some gear embellishments....oh well...I am still in LOVE with this card. Here's a closer look at this fabulous image, Halloween Magic.  Even though she came out with the Halloween release this year, I think you can see how great she works for all your Steampunk projects as well!


Laura's birthday card was inspired by this fabulous dress that she designed (and yes...that's Laura in the picture!)



I pulled out Guys and Gears Perfectly Clear Set for the inside of the card.
But...I couldn't decide which sentiment to use because so many of them applied to Laura and how she keeps all the gears moving with this team! 

So....I used most of them!

Some of the other ladies on the team made birthday cards for Laura too.

You can check them out on their blogs:
