...and Another Quick Birthday Card

What's with the birthdays?? :O) LOL...there have been a ton recently! This card is for a young lady who worked for me at the job I just left (I moved to a different position).

I colored some of the flowers on the Upsy Daisy stamp with markers, huffed and stamped. I cut the image and background accent with my Spellbinders Scalloped and Rectangle Nestabilities. The pink background was embossed using my Cuttlebug Swirls Folder. I used markers to color the sentiment, cut the image using my Word Window Punch, and tied it to the satin ribbon with hemp twine.
My apologies for the horrible picture! I really need lessons :] For some reason I could NOT evade that shadow!!

A complete list of supplies can be found in my SCS Gallery. Hope your week started off on a positive note :]

This is a beautiful Birthday Card!!! I really enjoy the ribbon around the nesties! When I very first looked at it I did not realize it was ribbon, and it looked like a Cake stand with a Cake on it, if you can see what I am talking about. Below the ribbon looked like the stand part, and above the ribbon looked like the part with the Cake on the stand! Love this set I have that one too!!! I only have the Scallop Square and Circle nesties though!

I really want the new ones that look like the top note, and the scallop rectange too!

Love the Card it is totally cute!!! You can do a lot to your cards in an editing program and make almost any photo look good. I use Photoshop Elements for every card I upload!

I think your pictures are just fine though!!!

Did you read Lauren's post a few days ago about the top 10 things a crafter needs for Christmas???

I photo light box was one of them to help take better pictures of your cards!!! I do not have one. I usually end up using somthing behind my card and under my card to hold up the two pieces of Whisper White I have behind and below for my background! LOL
