I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Birthday Wishes

I started this card very late Sunday night, completed it, then last night decided I didn't really like the original scalloped border I had on the bottom. While looking for some ribbon for the top element, I found this black and white polka-dot ribbon. Presto-chango, and I had my finished card.

The layout is from Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge and the colors come from this week's CR84FN23 Color Challenge. The colors this week are light pink, black and cream.

Stamps: Easter Blossoms and So Happy For You sets by Stampin' Up
Card stock: SU black and blushing bride
Patterned Paper: SU
Ink: memento tuxedo black, Copics
Other: SU crocheted lace, pink paper flower (purchased at TE store), Die-namics die, re-used polka-dot ribbon, the Big Shot, pop-up glue dots, SU double sided sticky tape

Have a great Wednesday, and thanks,
