Happy First Birthday Card

Hi friends.  Today I have a pretty little First Birthday card to share that I created for a special little girl.  I had fun embellishing with beautiful ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I will admit that I had NO game plan for this card and as is typically the case – I waited until the last minute.  I never mean to do that, but time just gets away from me.  Can anyone relate?
Luckily the card just seemed to come together by itself.  I love when that happens.
So at times like this when it’s last minute, I don’t have time for handmade flowers, no matter how much I like to make them.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries a huge variety of Mulberry Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts for just such occasions, and it’s great to have some on hand for when you find yourself needing to put a card together quickly.

I pulled out some of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and a great 1st birthday digi stamp from Create with TLC and I was off to the races.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used
My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Bright Pink Plaid Ribbon and 5/8″ Hot Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I also ran a piece of the Delicate Stitched Satin across the center of the card under the sentiment panel and topped that with a piece of 3/8″ Mixed Pink Confetti Dot Grosgrain Ribbon.
