Birthday Wishes


Good morning!!  Well, it's Monday, but it's a short, fun week and there's no staff meeting tonight :)  I had a lovely day in the studio yesterday...making cards for a few new challenges I've been following.  This card is for the Card Positioning Systems sketch this week.  I enjoy their sketches and they offer prizes too!!  As I've mentioned before, the draw is random so everyone has the chance to win :)  I {heart} that.  I don't make too many long cards like this, but it was fun.  I've had this Amy Butler paper in the back of my mind for awhile and thought the larger canvas could handle it.  I dug through my scraps bag and pulled out some yummy berry sorbet bitty boxes dp :)  That led me to the guava strip and the only colour (IMHO) of ribbon that looked perfect with this was Raspberry Fizz :)  Two little bits of bling for a bit of sparkle and there we are :)  I took a bit of liberty with the sketch...moving the ribbon over to the other side...or maybe I just flipped the sketch...yeah, that's what I did....hehe. I hope the week is starting out well for you...perhaps I should make a few Easter cards this week and give those Verve Easter stamps some love :)  Thanks for visiting :)

Wonderful job with the sketch Maureen! That paper at the top is groovy. I love it!!! And the raspberry fizz is a perfect addition...along with the bling.

Awww no fair! We had a staff meeting after work today - felt like it went on forever!!! Not the best start to the week but at least it's only 4 days long ;D
Love the different size of this card! As always, only your bows are capable of making me literally drool at the keyboard LOL!

This is so pretty! I love that background paper, and the two little jewels are the perfect addition! Thanks for joining us at CPS this week!
