Have a Fabulous Birthday!

I had such a great day off and I just wanted to finish it up by showing you this card I made for a good friend! ...and I couldn't miss the JustRite challenge either, so I used the "Rock N Roll" technique described on the challenge post on my card!

What's that mean? Let me explain...I took this oh-so-pretty You Inpsire Me cling stamp and used the pointy edge of my Memento stamp pad (the little ones that look like a dew drop) to ink the inside edge of the stamp. Then, I rolled the edges of the stamp on the green stamp pad to ink the outside edges and scrolls of the stamp. Two colors....one stamp...voila'!

I carefully cut out the shape and cut out another circle with my Spellbinders dies, inked the edges in the same green ink and stamped my sentiment with a coral pink to match. The colors in this great MME paper were my inspiration! I decided to sew all my layers too! I added some tiny pearls to my cut out shape and the panel behind it. In the corner is a matching bow to my ribbon, a pretty pink flower, a leaf trinket pin and another beaded pin! (p.s. the ribbon took on a green tint in the pic, but it's really the same blue as the paper with a shimmery metallic thread in it! Very pretty IRL!)
