Birthday Card

Good Morning and Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Today I'd like to share another card I made for the Birthday Card Club I participate in.  I'm really happy to be participating in this "Club" because I find the challenge of creating cards using colors or styles that someone else likes instead of what I would normally do, a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow.  I'm having the best time doing this.  Thanks so much Lori www.craftinblind.blogspot.com for asking me to participate. 

Now let's get to the card!

I started this 5"x7" card with a white card base.  My first layer is Grenadine Bazzill Basics card stock.  The pink and red polka dot paper and the red and white striped paper are from the Recollections Bright and Basic's stack.  I cut the frame that houses my sentiment from the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge.  My sentiment is stamped with a Fiskars stamp using Stampin' Up Real Red Ink.  I also added some Stampin' Up Brights Candy Dots and Recollections Flowers for embellishment.  The ribbon going across the card is Morex Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon. 

Red and pink isn't a color combination I would normally think to use, but those were two colors that the intended recipient of this card said she likes.  I'm really happy with the way the card turned out.  I hope the recipient will like it too.

I hope you'll stop by again soon to see what I'm up to.
