Happy Birthday!

I had lots of fun playing around with my stamps and paper for a bit this afternoon! Here's one of the cards that I made.

Photobucket

The card base is Royal Velvet, then I layered a piece of Simply Chartreuse which was die cut on one edge using the small scalloped border die. I added a strip of Sweet Symphony paper, over which I added some gorgeous green ruffly ribbon. I then stamped the sentiment onto Lavendar Moon paper, cut with the double-ended banner die, using Grape Jelly ink. The last touch was to add a few purple buttons, one of which was tied with silk ribbon.

The color is much better and true to life on the close up.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

I love the ruffled ribbon and the beautiful color combination. The double ended banner die peeking out is the finishing touch.
