For Granny Mar Lou

That is apparently what my husband called his grandmother when he was very little. (her name is Mary Louise). At the time she would correct him and tell him to call her Grandma Tompkins, which is what he calls her today. After we had Kieran, she revealed to me that she regretted this and wished than she had let Nathan continue to call her Granny Mar Lou. So now, she really wants this to be Kieran's name for her. Which I think is just so sweet. Her birthday is later on this month and this is the card I made for her. I'm also using it for the A Muse Studio Challenge blog challenge this week. The challenge was to let the sentiment take the focus. I was very inspired by this card. I loved how Michelle used the swirls to frame the words, and yellow and gray are such a great color combo! The inside of my card says, "There is no one like you".
Stamps: A Muse marvelous marigolds set (inside), birthday greetings set, ornate elements set
Paper: A Muse sugar, buttercup and slate cardstock
Inks: A Muse slate and buttercup
Misc.: yellow satin ribbon, foam mounting tape, Tonic ticket tag corner punch, A Muse sugar pearl stickers
