Today I Celebrate You...

Hi there - I'm back from vacationing in Riviera Maya, Mexico and I cannot tell you how happy I am to be back. I really missed so much while I was gone. And then there's the fact that I came back with a head and chest cold, and landed to hear about the sweltering heat in the Northeast... and let's not even begin to discuss the fact that the A/C is broken at work...but at least I have my papercrafts and I truly did miss it!

Tonight I have a card for you...I'm catching up on some challenges and way ahead on others...

JustRite Friday Challenge #25 - Inside and Out (decorate both inside and outside of card)
Just Us Girls # 40 - awesome sketch!
Pile It On #26 - My favorite things - Holly Hobbie, birthdays, bling, shabby, pink, shall I go on!
Crazy 4 Challenges #44 - Use two or more ribbons on your card! pink and brown!
Sweet Stampin' Challenge # 33 - Pearls and Pins
Caardvarks July Challenge - birthday!

I started with this adorable new KaiserCraft paper line called Hey Birdie! I just love the little details and the colors too! I used my JustRite Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set in Memento Rich Cocoa. Then I cut them out with Fiskars circle punch. The Holly Hobbie stamp is one of my favorite things - I still have my original Holly Hobbie ragdoll in the attic. I stamped her with Rich Cocoa and colored her with copics to match the dp. The pink scalloped circle was handcut from the papers and the green and ivory are cut with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles large set.

I got some of this great pink lace at my local scrapbook store as well as the light pink silk yummy! A JoAnn's pink leaf and a pearly pin finish off the bow! A little Recollections bling and the front is complete.

And since the JustRite challenge is called Inside and is the inside of the card!
Another sentiment from the Birthday set, a little more paper and a little more ribbon to finish it off!

I hope you like it - thanks for stopping by!
