Pink Birthday Wishes


Sweet blog friends, Happy Monday to you!! I wanted to make something on the feminine side so I flipped through die templates laying on the table and came up with this combination. I mentioned that Spellbinders™ Romantic Rectangles was at the top of my list and was my starting point on this card. I added an element from Spellbinders™ Antique Frame, Accents, Spellbinders™ Damask Accents and Spellbinders™ Persian Accents. For the underlayer I used Spellbinders™ Classic Edges One paired with Spellbinders™ Classic Decorative Inserts Two and cut it up so that it would fit around the edges
.

Hanging from the bow, I suspended a Happy Birthday sentiment from Our Daily Bread Design – Special Blend.

SUPPLIES I USED
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs – Special Blend
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Cream 80 lb Cover, Bazzill
Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink – Pastel Pink
Accessories: Spellbinders™ Romantic Rectangles,  Spellbinders™ Antique Frame, AccentsSpellbinders™ Damask Accents, Spellbinders™ Persian Accents, Spellbinders™ Classic Edges One,

Crafty smooches!!  Oh, don’t forget I have blog candy going on for Prima Printery and Romantique paper – here’s the link if you want to participate – http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/goodbye-dear-old-friend/

    Beautiful, Becca!
