Happy Birthday

** 10/28/15 Winner at Word Art Wednesday! **

Hi everyone! I'm popping in on this nice cool morning to share my 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project with you. This is my last DT project for 3 Girl JAM and here's a huge thanks to Julie and the rest of the DT for indulging me this year! I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed creating with all the gorgeous 3 Girl JAM ribbon, trim and vintage buttons!

I've veered quite a bit from my fancy folds and my autumn/fall projects to bring a you a birthday card today. I used the beautiful Grey-Gray crinkle ribbon from the LG Bundle. This is the most gorgeous shade of gray there ever was!

I've been using my stitched circle, rectangle and square dies A LOT lately. Just can't get enough of that clean look they give to a basic shape! I used a new GKD birthday stamp set and scattered some silver sequins. Love the birthday cake! Love that big multi-loop grey-gray bow! (Wink-wink!) ;)

I brought the black, gray and teal color scheme from the front to the inside, and stamped a wonderful birthday sentiment from the same GKD stamp set. Very happy with how this turned out!

Proud to enter this birthday card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin' Up! Smoky Slate cardstock, Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock, Simple Stories DIY Boutique double-sided 6x6 paper
  • Stamps: GKD Happy Birthday To You stamp set
