Birthday Wishes Card

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty pink and brown birthday card created with some of my favorite Cheery Lynn Designs dies and beautiful ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
8-27-16-1This beautiful Quadrafoil Square Doily is up there in my top all time favorites list.  Isn’t it gorgeous?!

You know I’m also in love with making beautiful handmade roses and today I used the wonderful Medium Tea Rose die.  I cut the layers in brown and tan and I inked the tan layer with an old script background stamp for texture and also inked the edges.  I then shaped the layers and assembled.

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.
