Quilted Happy Birthday


Hey there!
Wow! Summer sure has kept me busy!! I have really been missing my stamping time. Especially with the new catalog out, and all of the new colors, and ribbons, and stamp sets.... I really just want to sit for days and stamp!.. but I can't. I did manage to free up an hour today to make a card I had floating around in my head. I was inspired by a quilt that we have in our extra bed room. I thought the new Dotted Scallp Ribbon Border punch looked like lace, so I sponged the edges and crumbled it up to give it a vintage feel. I used three new colors on this one, two In Colors... Poppy Parade, and Peach Parfait, and I also used the new Daffodil Delight.. which I totally love!!! I thought it was missing some 'real' ribbon, so I threw in some Pear Pizzaz ribbon. I am in LOVE with the new In Color ribbon!!! ... so soft. I hope you enjoy checking out my latest card. The colors are a little bit wild for me, but it's all about color this year, so I figured, why not! Thanks for stopping by!
