Birthday Blessings

Hi there crafty peeps!  Welcome to day two of the  Really Reasonable Ribbon/Crafty Secrets cross promotional event.  Bonnie kicked it all off yesterday, so if you missed her great post make sure to go check it out!

I made my card base with some lovely patterned papers from Webster's Pages that I pulled from my stash.  I matted them to pale pink cardstock.  I then matted a beautiful spring Mum image from the Digital Flowers Printable Sheet printed on white 65lb cardstock.  I also cut out and mounted a sentiment from the Little Blessings Creative Scraps.  Both the image and the sentiment were inked around the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.  I created a band around the card and a triple loop/double layered bow with Lyndsay White Crochet Lace and Aqua Double Faced Satin Ribbon.  I added some sparkle to the main image with clear fine art glitter.  I added some flat backed pearls as a final accent to the card.

I hope you enjoy my inspiration today.  Head on over to both  Really Reasonable Ribbon and Crafty Secrets for loads of wonderful crafty products!
