Birthdays Are the Best



Happy Birthday, Rachel! That's right, it's Rachel's birthday over at Hope Stamps Eternal and to celebrate, the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #56 is all about birthdays and cupcakes:)



Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #66 was a great inspiration for the layout of my card...and guess what? It's Karen's birthday, too!!! Happy, happy birthday, Karen!



I stumbled upon a new challenge, the Hoppy Spring Theme Challenge #1 over at DeNami Designs, so the bloom was a must!



When I started making this card, I realized that I didn't have the exact supplies I wanted. I would really love some Kraft colored grosgrain or twill...has anybody seen any of that out there in the paper-crafting world. I also need to get some plastic kraft buttons to add to my stash:)



Have a great week everyone!



Stamps: Blooming Button Bits (PTI)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Kraft, Whisper White CS, Bella Bleu, Shades of Spring & retired DSP
Ink: Sahara Sand, Melon Mambo, Chocolate Chip
Other: Circle/Scallop Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Rich Avocado Buttons & Twill and Button Twine (PTI)

This is super pretty! I love the colors on the card! If you ever find a place where they have twill or grosgrain ribbon, let me know! I would love some for my stash too! As far as kraft buttons, we have them at DeNami Design- they are called "sand".

So glad you were able to play along with the DeNami challenge! We hope you can play with us again in the future!

SU! is offering a full line of kraft (crumb cake) accessories in the new IBC starting July 1, 2010. I've seen ribbon, buttons and brads, so there you go! I actually had some kraft grosgrain at one point, but used it up recently...
