another year older

Hello there, scrappy friends! I've been busy as a bee in the scrap room over the past several weeks and wouldn't have it any other way! I'm so thankful for this amazing hobby and my very supportive husband. I am truly blessed. It's time for another fun challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon! I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for #135 - Celebrate with Ribbon or Trim. C'mon and dig into your crafty stash and come play with us! There are lots of reasons to celebrate - a birthday, a baby or an anniversary, to name just a few.

I created a birthday card featuring an inlaid die cut and the delicious Apple Green Satin Swiss Mini Dots from the February Ribbon Club Assortment. OMG, green is my all-time favorite color and I'm in love all over again! ;) Loving the pale green background paper with the pop of red on the butterflies, layered on gold mirror cardstock. I cut the doily with a Cheery Lynn die.

I created this gorgeous double loop bow with my Bow-it-All v2.0. You wouldn't believe how easy it is to create beautiful bows with this amazing tool! Be sure to check out Bonnie's awesome bow tutorials on YouTube!

I used the Paper Smooches Adorable Array die, a couple different shades (and textures) of green cardstock, and some clear Wink of Stella over the two flower elements, and layered the panel on gold mirror cardstock. Inlaid die cuts are so much fun - it's like piecing together a puzzle. :)

For the inside, I used a couple leftover strips of paper and cardstock from the front and stamped a large sentiment. Both the front and inside sentiments from from Unity and I used a black card base this time.

Proud to enter this card into these challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Black Onyx, Red Hot and Grass Green cardstock, DCWV green and cream textured cardstock scraps; Marco's Gold Mirror cardstock, GKD Garden Tour 6x6 patterned paper
  • Stamps: Unity Birthday Jubilee stamp set
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Dies/Punches: Paper Smooches Adorable Array die, Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party die
  • Accessories: RRR Apple Green Satin Swiss Mini Dots, MISTI, green flat-back pearls
