Hi all,

Well, what a miserable day it is today - hasn't stopped raining all day!

Have found the time to christen my Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and decided to make a birthday card - you can never have enough, right? I tried to be good and use different Stampin' Up! products/colour combos that I haven''t used before, so in my attempt, I can say that the Always Artichoke cardstock was a first for me, along with the So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon. This is the second time I've used the Poppin' Pastels technique that's featured in the "Stampin' Techniques" booklet on P.10 (a handy booklet that you receive when you place an order with Stampin' Up!) Love how this creates a soft and subtle effect :)

Here's the card:

Stamps: Sale-A-Bration: Happy Moments and Vintage Labels (sentiment).
Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Regal Rose and Whisper White.
Ink Pad: Basic Grey and Regal Rose. Versamarker Pen.
Stampin' Pastels - Pretty In Pink and Old Olive, Sponge Daubers, Eyelet Border Punch, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon - So Saffron, 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon - Whisper White and Stampin' Write Marker - Pretty in Pink, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, 3D dimensionals and Bone Folder.

Card Size: A6.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend everyone.
