A big thank you to Joan for coordinating this hop and for the invite!  Happy 86th Birthday Wishes to Justice Ginsburg.  A woman that has brought extraordinary influence on both civil and women's rights.  As a momma to two kids, I thank you for what you've done and continue to accomplish.

I'm the start of the festivities!  My project was inspired by a sticker I ordered when Joan first reached out to me:


The laurel wreath and pops of green sold me on it.  The job of incorporating it into a card design was much more difficult but here's how it inspired me:


The sticker has been mounted with a foam square in case she wants to pop it onto her laptop (wink).

The stripe panel is from the Echo Park Paper Coffee Collection.  The Stampin' Up So Saffron panel has been stamped with The Stamp Market's Criss Cross Background and heat embossed in white.  Although the exterior doesn't scream 'Birthday', I saved that for the interior:


The banner and sentiment is by Mama Elephant.  I matted the sentiment panel with a coordinating cardstock panel and also used the Lil Inker Designs (retired) Envelope Liner.

I can't wait to see how my other friends were inspired.  Here's the hop listing for today:

RBG Should be a postage stamps, I would seriously buy sheets and sheets of them.. Your card is fab!

Celeste Goff said...

How fun! I simply cannot think about RBG though without seeing the SNL "you've been Ginsburned" skits!

Amy, this is the first card that I don't care for. To me, Ginsberg is too much of a divisive thinker and political topic. Politics and cardmaking feel non-nourishing and explosive
