Happy belated Birthday, Dora!

Thursday night the 7 Cardologists celebrated Dora B.'s birthday. It was actually right after Christmas but she preferred that we celebrate it later and this was the first time we were all together again. 

This is the card I made for her and there is a funny story that goes with it. We all have a million of these dew drops (half domes made of glass) in every color that we bought when our LSS had them on sale way back when. So when we make a card often one of us suggests jokingly using some of our dew drops. That's why I wanted to use as many as possible on Dora's card. (12 used only 999,988 to go...) Also because I could hand deliver it. Those dew drops are very bulky and make mailing a pain. (I am thinking of challenging myself to use lots of them on all of their cards this year, shhh!)  
I colored strips of vellum with the only set of Spectrum Noir Markers that I own. Bought them months ago and only opened them now! How sad is that!

Stamp: Avery Elle (sentiment)
Punch: Carl Carla Design

Sending this to the following challenges (Thank you, Darnell, for a very thorough list of Challenges, including links! Your rock!):

  15. This is so pretty and I really think you should start a tradition of using those dew drops on all their cards. What a great story that would make over the years ;)

  17. You're welcome, Susanne! Thank YOU for entering my NBUS Challenge #3 as part of your array! Challenges are FUN!! And so is this fab card for Dora! I love how you did your ombre vellum flowers and filled them with dot centers. It's actually a pretty design and not like a jokey card at all! I love those dot embellies! I'm heading over to wish Dora a belated birthday! Thanks again! Hugs, Darnell
