Birthday Wishes

Hey All!

Happy Sunday! It's been a relaxing weekend around here and I've loved it! I found some inky time yesterday evening :) I decided to have a play with some more NEW PTI goodies along with some much loved PTI goodies!

Again, this card firs into the A Passion for Papertrey challenge - Backgrounds. I used the background stamp from the Round Round Anniversary set. I used SU! Bermuda Bay & Summer Sun inks and stamped the background alternating the colours.

I used the Mat Stack 2 die & stamp set and the sentiment is from Round Round. I love the Mat Stack 2 die & having the stamps just completes the look. I added a cut out leaf from Turning a New Leaf for the main focus of the card. I layered these on top of 2 strips of ribbon. One strip of Summer Sunrise & one strip of Hawaiian Shores, both satin ribbon. The sentiment layer & leaf hides the joins of the ribbon.

I liked the card as it was but thought it needed something extra! So, I added a butterfly to the upper right hand side. For this I used the Butterfly Dreams die & stamp set, along with a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. Some bling to the butterfly & also the either end of the Mat Stack finishes the card off!

I very rarely use yellow in my creations, more so as a focus colour, so I really stepped out of my comfort zone for this one. I think it looks so cheery & bright with the Hawaiian Shores & white that I might just use this colour combo again! I'm sure whoever gets this card for their birthday will feel the cheer too!

Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Lovin this one! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I wanted a real ball busting card. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
