Birthdays are the best!

OK, one more Blooming Button Bits card and I’ll quit—for now, LOL! For this one, I started with a Stamper’s Select White base and added a layer of Kraft.


I stamped a strip with a stamp from Polka Dot Basics II with Dark Chocolate, then I stamped the image on more white with Dark Chocolate ink and added Melon Berry Vintage Buttons, tied on with Rustic Twine. I sponged the edges of this element with a little Vintage Touch ink in Chamomile to soften the edges a bit. I stamped the sentiment on Melon Berry card stock with Dark Chocolate and popped it up on 3M foam circles. A Melon Berry grosgrain ribbon finished it off, Clean and Simple and I love it!

I’m so glad you stopped by today!
