Happy Birthday Case!

ETA: Dork alert!! My daughter Marcie, told me-- in a kind way--- that I was spelling Nichole wrong......I can't freakin' believe it! AND my apologies to everyone who noticed and cringed but didn't say anything......why didn't you SAY something!!

I got a little creative today in a "casing" kind of way!

This card uses three different stamp sets from Papertrey Ink and a backgrounder "Pretty Pattern Backgrounds" from Cornish Heritage Farms.

Papertrey Ink's stamp sets used were "Birthday Basics", "Garden of Life" and "Beautiful Blooms".

I was inspired by this card on Nicole's post, look familiar!!??
I changed up the colours to Spring Moss card base with a Lemon Tart cardstock band.

I stamped the Pretty Pattern Background by Cornish Heritage Farms in Spring Moss Ink on the card base.

The lemon tart paper was glued to Papertrey Ink white cardstock and Happy Birthday from the "Birthday Basics" stamp set was stamped in Spring Moss Ink.

Stamps from PTI's Garden of Life and Beautiful Blooms make up the flowers.

They were stamped on a die cut from the flowers of a Cuttlebug die and then stickles were added in the center of the flowers.

I tied the stitched ribbon around the lemon tart band and adhered it to the card base and I popped up the flowers with dimensionals.

It sure didn't take long (considering I cased the thing) and it is quite pretty IMHO!

I FINALLY got out golfing today!! woohoo! and it was brutal......I sucked big time.....Well, it was the first time out and I forgot to take my golf shoes (incredibly dumb) and - oh I am making excuses!! I need more practise!! YAY!

    I bet your golfing could never suck as bad as mine! I'm the worlds worst, but I still love to play!

  5. This is OMG pretty. How fresh and lovely those colours are! You may need a little practice at golf (though I'm sure it was the shoes) but you have your stampin game mastered. Way above par! :0) mel
