Birthday Wishes Card

Hi friends.  I’m guest designing over on the Crafting by Design Challenge Blog for the June Challenge.  The theme for June is ‘Anything Goes’ and I’d love to have you head on over and link up a project (or three).

My card today features my favorite Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and one of the new Heart Shaped Dotted Wave Rhinestones from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with some gorgeous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

 I’m still playing around with Distress Inks and I’m LOVING them.  So much fun!  I also added some Distress Oxide Inks on the paper I made for the roses.

I wrapped some 5/8″ Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon around the center of my card under the sentiment and topped that with 3/8″ Tutti Frutti Chevron Grosgrain Ribbon for some added color.

My pretty bi-color bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 tool using 5/8″ Hot Pink and Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I finished off the center of the bow with a pink Heart Shaped Dotted Wave Rhinestone.
