Happy Australia Day!

A quick post today to wish all the other Aussies a very happy Australia Day!
And, to share another pretty card with you.

This one was quick and easy and uses a few of the same elements as my card from yesterday’s post.  These gorgeous new patterned papers from Stampin’ Up! certainly make it easy to whip up a card in a few minutes.  Below is are the products I have used to make this card.
Happy stamping!

Ribbon or Lace Challenge

Crafty Boots Challenges is currently running a “Ribbon or Lace” challenge.
In the past, I would have loved this one and found it really easy, I used to love using ribbons, bows, lace, you name it, as long as it was girly and pretty.  I seem to have lost my Ribbon and Lace mojo!  So it really has been a challenge to make a card with ribbon, I wanted to leave it off, I had other ideas, but I put on the ribbon, and a nice big bow!

Still not entirely happy with it though, I think I will make it again without the ribbon….Lol 🙂
Below is a list of the gorgeous goodies I used to create my card.
I hope you will pop on over and check out what the rest of the Design Team have been creating, and share your own project with us too.
Happy stamping!

Pretty New Papers

Oh yes, the new patterned papers from Stampin’ Up! are stunning, so I wanted to feature two different ones on my card today.  And I have used the sketch challenge from Mojo Monday 429 to design my card.

The only stamping on this card, is the Happy Birthday sentiment, which comes from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.
The background papers are from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack, and the beautiful feature flower is from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Papers. I have used a circle die to cut it straight from the 12×12 sheet, although I really didn’t want to cut it up, it is too beautiful!!

Happy Stamping!
