Sending Birthday Wishes to You

Hi Cheery Lynn fans.  Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here with you today sharing a pretty floral birthday card featuring some lovely dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and gorgeous ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Not a member of our Monthly Ribbon Club yet??

The April Ribbon Club Assortment is ribbon collection evoking thoughts of the beach in a mix of blues and browns and it contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and crochet lace.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles!

Today I’m using the pretty Bohemian Mehndi Botanicals 3 die layered on the Mandela Doily 2 from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I went to my Distress Ink scrap paper stash and pulled out a couple colors to work with.  I cut the layers and shaped them a bit and finished off the center of the flower with a chevron cabachon layered over a metal gear.

Cheery Lynn dies used:

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also ran two ribbons from the assortment across the center of the card behind the flower focal point.
