Happy Birthday In Blues

Good Morning!

This card will be entered into the Challenges at; Stamp TV, It's My Party (Cat's Birthday!), Scrapy Land, Favorite Colors (this time more pretty shades of blue), Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes! and Simon Says Work It Wednesday, Something New.

Lots of pretty blues!  Stamp sets by Gina K Designs, Birthday Blessings and French Flair, both new to me as well as the Penny Black die, Border Edges, somewhat new to me, and all so beautiful! 

The wordy stamp from French Flair stamped in Dove Grey ink to start my background.  Then I stamped the butterfly and vine images in Not Quite Navy ink on top of that.  I also found a ribbon in my stash to compliment the blue shades.  Jar, heart floral and sentiment stamped in Not Quite Navy and Black Licorice inks.  I filled my jar with Waterfall Stickles. 

Folded flat to show off that pretty border die, isn't it glorious?  Thanks Barbara Campbell, peer pressure at it's finest.  lol
Oh and to toot my own horn just a bit, I am in the current CardMaker 30.  I used the fabulous Stamper's Favorites set by Gina K Designs illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.

And also a sneak peek above Tanya's head on page that!

Thanks for popping in.
