Birthday Wishes!

I wanted to play with the new Sale-A-Bration set So Many Scallops and I needed to make a birthday card at the same time. I also pulled in the new decorative papers "Afternoon Tea." They are SO pretty! Some of the papers in it remind me of Grandma's wallpaper! I thought this was a fun paper even though I have a lot of problems working with papers that have large items on it. For this one it was the flowers but I did manage to work with them and I think the card turned out ok. On the background of the green on the top I used the new "Twill" background stamp. I inked it up with Chocolate Chip and I stamped off once and then stamped on top of the card stock. I think it was River Rock. I need to write down what I use on a card as I'm making it!!!

I'm SO glad the spell checker is working on here again. It was SO difficult to try to make sure I spell everything correctly as I typed it. I usually just type and take care of anything I mess up along the way later. I can type much faster that way.

I'm off to finish up my swap cards for next week. I will share them with you here after the swap. They are "top secret" right now!!! LOL

Hey Wanda, I agree about the large flowered paper.....I have a hard time, too, but this worked out great!
The shading helps coordinate the paper & the stamped image!

I love the way you used ribbon both as a border and leaves for the flower. You are so good at sponging your cards too which really makes them stand out! TFS another great card!
