sending birthday wishes

sending birthday wishes bow

You know how low my birthday card stash was, so I have been trying to make a point of making birthday cards once a week! :)

This card started with two things sitting on my desk, some new Crate paper I picked up called, Lillian, and a pile of transparencies I had stamped. Printed transparencies seem to be popping up all over the place. I love the look and thought, hey, I have some pretty cool stamps and I could make my own! I stamped the Damasks shown here, wood grain, cross hatched lines, and a few others. I used Palette ink, but it took over night to dry. I might try StazOn next time and see what the dry time is.

The rest of the card is pretty obvious. I am not sure about the bow yet. The pink was the color I wanted. I tried all sorts of ways to use the ribbon, but when I tied the bow, it landed on the card like that, so I went with it! :)

Have a fantastic weekend! We will be bringing the little man to my parents on Sunday because they will be watching him while I am at CHA. I cannot believe CHA is here already! YAY! thanks for stopping by!
