Birthday Wishes


I'm back today with another orange card!  I really gravitate toward that color, I think! : ) 
I used a pretty springy piece of designer paper from the Kaisercraft Spring Bloom pad as my base, and then stamped a piece of creamy white cardstock on an angle with the Filigree Leaves Background.  My birthday greeting, from the Birthday Wishes For You set, is stamped in the smallest of the Elegant Labels 4 Dies, and I sponged it lightly with kraft ink before removing the paper from the die.  The GORGEOUS deep orange ribbon is called "wrinkled ribbon" and it has the look of seam binding but it is a little stiffer and makes lovely bows.... when bows are called for!

I needed just a little something more, and with the flowers and vines on the card already, a butterfly seemed just right, so I stamped the butterfly from the Black Eyed Susan set on white cardstock and cut it out by hand.  I added a few pearls and some stitching, and there you have it.  And easy to replicate birthday card!  I need to make a few of these for my stash!
