Happy Birthday

Happy Wednesday to you all! I can't believe it's Hump Day already! This week is going faster than I thought it would. Anyway, today's card was made for the Gallery Idol challenge sponsored by good ole' Paper Crafts! The card is a 4.25" square. I used some SEI goodies provided by Moxie Fab World blog when I won the Citrus Color Challenge last month! I know I've mentioned this before, but that Bridgeport SEI collection is so nice! It's great for wedding ensembles too (hmmmm)! I used a leftover paper from this card. It s double-sided, so you get two-for-one! Using my Scor-Bug, I paper pierced the patterned paper, then added faux stitching with a Uniball Signo white gel pen. The edges were distressed with Tim Holtz distresser.

Card Instructions
  1. Trim lemon tart cardstock into a 4.25" square card.
  2. Trim patterned papers to 4" x 4".
  3. Paper pierce the patterned paper, then add faux stitching with gel pen.
  4. Distress the edges of the patterned paper, then tie ribbon around it.
  5. Stamp sentiment on tag, adhere to patterned paper, then adhere to card front.
  6. Add buttons.
