Happy 29th birthday

** 7/13/15 Featured Creation at Scrapping4fun Challenges! **

Hi everyone! I'm happy to share with you today a 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project. I used a new stamp set and new papers, and some of the most beautiful 3 Girl JAM ribbon... London Blue ribbon from the Wine & Jewels Bundle and Sunflower Jute Ribbon from the Jute Ribbon & String Pack. Oh my goodness, this is some awesome ribbon!

I had the best time creating this birthday card for my BFF of 44 years. I haven't had this new stamp set very long and really wanted to use it. This vibrant little lady needed to be surrounded by some pretty colors, so I used some new Bohemian papers and cardstock, and paired them with the gorgeous 3 Girl JAM ribbon. 

I colored the stamped image with Spectrum Noir markers matching the colors in the papers, and layered it on some pretty die cuts embellished with some Glittered Gumdrops. I found a foam arrow in my stash (that I've had at least seven or eight years) and embellished it with some gemstones. And how about that big gorgeous bow?! ;)

I generally keep the insides of my cards simple but I wanted a pop of color to go with this funny sentiment, so I punched a 2" circle from the background paper used on the front. I'm still sitting here chuckling over this sentiment! Hahahaha! She's not 29 and I'm not 110 lbs! ;)
