Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! Enjoying some quiet time here on the sofa this evening with the hubs kicked back snoring in my left ear, lol! I’m back with another card I created this afternoon for The Outlawz Challenges. This beauty is for the new Crash Your Stash Challenge where the challenge this month is to use Ribbon from our stash. Lemon Shortbread is our sponsor and I’ve used her absolutely stunning Flowers Curls Girl digital image to create a birthday card.


I started with muted mint, green and pink digital background papers, and then as I colored the image, the colors got brighter and brighter, so I pulled it all together with the checkered ribbon. I printed the digital sentiment, trimmed it and added it to the bottom right. I finished off the front with some hot pink glittered gumdrops.


I printed the inside sentiment, trimmed the panel and embellished it with the digital papers used on the front.


And one more look… really loving how this came together! What a gorgeous image! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
