My card is a lovely mix of pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  My background paper was made with Distress Inks so I could pull in several of the colors from the Ribbon Club Assortment.  I love the way it turned out.  It’s actually left over pieces from another project I will share next week.

Happy Birthday to You

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty floral birthday card using one of my favorite flower die sets from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some pretty ribbons and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I have lots of layer on this card, but I think it’s pretty easy to see from the photo how the layers were assembled.  I just love the Square Frames die for square cards.

My blue/tan background paper was made using Distress Inks spritzed with water.  I tend to make extra when I make my Distress papers and I actually created another card in this same color scheme which you can see HERE.

My flowers and foliage were created with the Floral Bouquet die set from Cheery Lynn Designs which is such a versatile flower set.  I used some of the same paper from my background for the blue flower petals along with some navy and kraft color cardstock.  The layers were also inked with an old script stamp for some additional interest.  The flowers and foliage were cut and then shaped with a stylus and foam pad.  The flowers were layered and finished off with some cool Metal Gear Embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon for a cool industrial feel.  I added a pretty butterfly to the right side of the card to balance things out.
Cheery Lynn Dies used:
My card was finished off with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Ivory and Capri Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
