Birthday Wishes

I picked up some elegant, flocked pattern paper from My Mind’s Eye.  This is from the Lush collection and it is luscious in person. I used some Ivory silk ribbon from May Arts and I love using it too—it’s a bit hard to cut the ends cleanly because it’s so delicate.Birthday Wishes I’m entering this card in a new to me challenge site called Just Add InkJAI is primarily SU products but all are welcome.  If you don’t have a blog you can e-mail them your entry—that’s pretty cool.  Check out the current sketch challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and have a wonderful weekend!
