Birthday Wishes

This card is for the next Viva la Verve March Challenge with a twist. The twist is to make it a birthday card. Too easy, LOL!

My base card is Very Vanilla with layers of Not Quite Navy and Kraft. The next layer is a combination of patterns from Bella Bleu DSP and Not Quite Navy, following the sketch. Also following the sketch, a taupe satin ribbon (very luxurious ribbon from My Favorite Things) is tied around in a bow. The focal image is from Verve's Birthday Surprise set and is stamped on Very Vanilla with Not Quite Navy ink. It was cut/embossed with a Labels One Nestabilities die. The mats should be self-explanatory, and it's popped up on 3M foam squares. The sentiment is from a new release from Verve called Circular Sayings, and fits on the Round Tab punch out perfectly. It was stamped on Very Vanilla with Not Quite Navy, has a Not Quite Navy "border" and is also up on foam squares.

Thanks for dropping by!
