Happy Birthday, beautiful you!

This card is for the Holiday Extravaganza Challenge #4, which can be found here. My base card is Whisper White, with a layer of Elegant Eggplant and then a layer of Certainly Celery. I added a strip of DP from Basic Grey's Euphoria 6 x 6 pad to the bottom.

My focal image is from Verve's Beautiful You set, stamped on Whisper White in Elegant Eggplant. I added a bit of Certainly Celery to the center of the medallion. It was then cut/embossed with a Nestabilities die, as were the Certainly Celery and Elegant Eggplant layers it's on. This element was mounted on the card with 3M foam squares.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White with a stamp from MFT's Sassy Sayings set in Elegant Eggplant and punched with the Word Window punch and layered on Certainly Celery punched with the Large Oval punch, which was then layered on Elegant Eggplant which was punched with the Designer Label punch, fullfilling that requirement. This element was also mounted with 3M foam squares. Dark purple ribbon was tied on in a knot to finish it off. It was hard to not add any embellishments except ribbon, LOL, but I did it! This was a quick card--and pretty--which is a good thing ;-)

Thanks for dropping in!
