My Birthday Card Example:


Here's my example for my recent Birthday Card Challenge. I've fallen in love this year not only with the 'In Colours', but also with the 12x12 Designer Series Papers. This one, Le Jardin, is just so feminine I couldn't resist using it for this crisscross card. The only thing I'm not sure about is the 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. I would have loved to have used the 5/8" grosgrain ribbon or the 'frilly' ribbon out of the Ribbon Originals 'Beachfront' pack. Unfortunately we must all make do with what we have on hand however. Thanks for looking.

Supplies:

* Sincere Salutations & Baroque Motifs Stamp Sets.

* Bashful Blue, Always Artichoke, River Rock & Very Vanilla Cardstock. Le Jardin DSP.

* Bashful Blue and Always Artichoke (inside card on insert) stamp pads.

* Round Tab Punch, Apricot Appeal Brad (from the Soft Subtles Pack of Brads) and the Very Vanilla 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.
