Birthday Card

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! We had family over on Sunday for the 4th and to celebrate a birthday. Then my husband only had Monday off, so we had a day of fun. (I took the rest of the week off--yay!)

My husband's grandmother is going to be 92 next week, so I needed another birthday card. She loves pink so I incorporated that.

Here's what I used:
French Manor Cricut Cart Bird & Branch cut at 2 1/2 inches (I think)
Bazill Basics Berry Blush, Carob, & Carob Cream cardstock
DCWV Safari Kids patterned paper
MPS Friends & Family Happy Birthday stamp
American Crafts ribbon
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
white pen

I took the picuture with plenty of light, but it's not showing the colors very well--there's a bit of orange in that patterned paper.  I think if you click on the picutre, you can see it a bit better.  And I just love that ribbon!  I got it in Archiver's.  It's very nice ribbon and has a color on the other side as well.

Oh, I have a blog button now!  Pam at The Posh Box installed it for me yesterday.  Isn't it cute?!

Have a wonderful day!
