Birthday Blessings

Good afternoon, blog buddies!!!  I'm still out of my card making routine, but I have a feeling it's a good thing.  I have lots of product coming this may be emotional shopping, or just that I've been admiring all the fabulous cards you've all been making with all the new stamps, paper and ribbon out there!! (maybe a bit of both!!)  The dh and I just got back from our little getaway and we had so much fun :)  We found several patios in the sun and got to go to all the stores we love :)  He napped in the car while I went into my favourite LSS there :)  I picked up some GORGEOUS prima 3D flowers and May Arts wide sheer'll know it when I use them...they are all GORGEOUS!!!  But I's card is for the third Viva La Verve sketch.  I couldn't decide if my card was more like the second or the third picture, so I picked the second one....just because it had some branches in some of the circle frames and the print colours reminded me of this new (to me) Kioshi paper.  I was thinking of a kraft card base all weekend and how this paper would POP off it.  The sentiments are from Verve's Blessings set.  The kraft panel is embossed with my new Floral Screen folder.  If you click on the picture, you can see it better.  Okay, off to wash some more summer change over has officially begun!! LOL  I will also try to catch up on comments over the next few always, thanks for leaving me some love as well :)

This is gorgeous, Maureen! I love the kraft on kraft. Pretty DP... is it a Japanese line? I like how you threaded and tied your ribbon... I'm trying to figure out how you did it... kind of like the magical shoelace. Glad to hear you had a great weekend! ttys!

I have seen Kioshi and loved some of the papers in it. You've used it wonderfully. Great ribbon colour and the EF adds some nice texture. Glad to hear you had a great weekend :D It's always nice to get away.

Lovely paper and great texture. Wonderful stamping too.

I ditto what Laural-Lee said! I didn't do it but I know I'd share her exact sentiment anyways. Awesome the kraft on kraft!

Such a sweet card! Love the embossing and how that BG line works so well with Kraft stock! :)

So glad you had a lovely time away and squeezed in a spot of crafty retail therapy ;D
I love the way your purple ribbon is not only tied in a perfect, Moe Bow, but totally jumps out loud against the kraft!
