It's me again...in less than two days

Another post? Didn't I just do one like two days ago? Well...Yeah, I did and No...I'm not feverish. I've got the paper craftin' bug going on - so I'm just going to move with it. Because with me...who know how long it'll last.

Today's card is a birthday card for my hubby's brother's wife. I had a quick turn around time...so I will preface the appearance of this card by saying I wanted quick and simple, but still nice lookin'...I think I achieved that. This card was inspired by many things outside of the occasion itself. I've wanted to use this ribbon ever since I bought it and I made myself a promise the next card I created was going to include it. The colors for the card were inspired by KWERNERDESIGN.COM COLOR INSPIRATION challenge. I don't have any Stamin' Up paper, so I had to match with what I have. I have always wanted to participate in one of these challenges...no time like the present. The layout of the card was inspired by the most recent SCS Sketch Challenge (SC215).

'til I craft again or have something to say...


Card Size: 4.25"x 5.5"; Stamp: Happy Birthday (garage sale find); Ink: Embossing Ink (Top Boss); Paper: White CS(Georgia-Pacific), Heavy Black, GrayRed, and Pink CS (Hobby Lobby); Accessories: Foam Squares, Heat Gun, Silver Embossing Powder (Ranger), Ribbon (Offray), Classic Butterfly Punch (MarthaStewart), Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug)
