Best Wishes Fore Your Birthday

This has got to be a favorite card of mine. I broke out some supplies I've had for YEARS to do this card.

The patterned stripes is a piece of fabric and I tried to do the ribbon treatment I love on everyone's card but can't quite grasp how to do it so well. I do like how the card turned out overall just wish my sewing/ribbon treatment were a little more straight.

The darlings from Clear & Simple Stamps give me lots of room for coloring, I love being able to pick & choose what colors I want to use inside or paper piece them as I did here.

Hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Stamp Set: Golf Darling by Clear & Siimple Stamps
Cardstock/Paper: Real Red, Pretty in Pink by Stampin' Up!, Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers R20, B91, B95, C1, T5, C4, YR21, Y35, E00, R29
Accessories: Swatchz Collectionz by Junkitz, Ribbon by Stampin' Up, Janome sewing machine with white thread, Soft Subtle brads by Stampin' Up!, Crystal Effects

On this card I used the Crystal Effects on her golf hat. I stitched the ribbon & Junkitz fabric on with the Janome sewing machine
