Birthday Wishes

I’m so happy that spring has finally arrived…I’ve spotted the first daffodil blooming in our front yard (whoo hoo!) This weeks Stamping 411 challenge threw me off a little but then I loved the idea of using scraps so I decided to give it a try and with only 2 weeks left in the Sale-a-bration promotion I used three different items that you can earn for free (love the freebies!).

I started with Melon Mambo for the card base and then added a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot with the SU! Perfect Details Texturz Plate. Then I picked to scraps of designer paper from the Welcome Neighbor SAB pack. I added a piece of Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon between the layers of designer paper before tying in a knot. I stamped the present image from the Happy Moments SAB Stamp set with Basic Black ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock that was layered on top of Rich Razzleberry. I used a mix of Stampin’ Write markers to color in the packages. I also stamped the packages on another scrap of designer paper and cut it out with my Paper Snips for the middle present.

The greeting is from the Whimsical Words SAB Set and is colored in with Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write markers and the whole thing is matted on a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock.

This is a really cute card that was fun to make and definitely matches the sunny mood we’re all feeling on this beautiful day.

Hope you enjoy.
