Raspberry Birthday Wishes

Hi Stampers, Happy Spring Equinox! I am so excited that Spring is officially here. The flowers are blooming, the weather is warming up and the birds are singing. YAY!!

Today I'm sharing with you a Birthday card I had originally made for the UdderlyAwesome Demo Meeting at the Spaghetti Factory this month. Unfortunately, due to last minute changes in my schedule I was unable to attend. :o( Needless to say, I now have 30 of these cards that were supposed to be swapped and now I have no idea what to do with them!

Okay, enough with the chit chat and on to the card. It's another quick and simple card but I love it just the same. I was inspired by Angie Juda (love her projects!) when making this card. I used Whisper White Cardstock and the base measure 3x3. I layered a piece of Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper to the front of it and then tied the Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon around the front of the card. I stamped the Happy Birthday image from the Wow Flowers set onto Whisper White Cardstock and punched it out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. This was then layered onto Rose Red Cardstock that was punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch. I also pierced a hole in each scallop with my Paper Piercing Tool. This was layered to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Lastly, I stamped the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment also from the Wow Flowers Set. C'est Voila! That's it! ;o)

Priscilla--looks like a great convention swap! Or pack them up in groups of 4, put a ribbon around the group and give as gifts. It is a beautiful card!
