Happy Birthday

Good Morning!

This card will be entered into the Challenges at Papertrey Ink, Past, Present And Future 2012 and Simon Says Monday, Favorite Tool.....which is back to my Janome Mini Sewing Machine.  I am hooked on sewing on cards again!

I loved Betsy's card shown here, she used the Sentiment Signs set.

And here's what I created:
I used a few Papertrey Ink products; Happy For You, Pretty Petals and Shakers & Sprinkles stamp sets.  And I loved Betsy's card soooo much I cut into several packs of that 19 paper pad collection I have been hoarding lol.  Rustic White card stock, Designer Papers in; Bitty Star Basics, Classic Kraft, Damask Design, Funky Town and Green Boutique! So there!  

The flag cuts were made using MFT's Blueprints #12 die set.  I stitched them right to the Classic Kraft Designer paper.  The frame round Happy Birthday was hand cut and popped up on itty bitty pieces of Fun Foam.  Inks in; Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party. Tempting Turquoise, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum
I really love the Subway Tile look of Betsy's design! 
Thanks for all of the sunshine and happiness, smiles and JOY!


  1. This is fabulous Donna! LOVE how you've stitched all those happy flags down the side and your sentiment panel is so much fun! I really MUST get my machine set up ... uugh! Then I need to figure out how to use it!! LOL

  3. I love all of the colorful flags and the stitching. Fun papers and design. I need to get my sewing machine out. I haven't stitched on a card for a long time. Love the look!

  4. Awesome card! I love the flag border with all the different patterns, sizes, and lengths!
