An elegant birthday

A sweet card to share with you today...

(yes, this is the card whose little sneak peek I showed you ;))

Supplies; Websters Pages "Postcards From Paris", Making Memories "Noteworthy", ribbon, button, Sugarloaf sentiment, Ink It Up! black, thread, white card base.

This is definitely a recycled card in the way that I used the receipt from Websters Pages (a very pretty pink) to make the paper ruffle, and that the bottom striped half of the card came from the back of their catalog they sent along with the paper. Pretty nifty, if I do say so myself. :)

For sweet yet elegant cards, "Postcards from Paris" is probably my favorite line to use...their shades of pink, cream and blue are spot on! Admittedly, I haven't used their "Sweet as Cherry Pie" line often (fine, only once), but I just don't feel like using it during these winter months...the weather does reflect on the cards I create, colorwise. These pinks, blues and creams are almost icy in a way, so they work with me. ;)

Anyways, this was made for Simply Scrappings ruffle challenge (LOVE IT!), Danni's Dream challenge, and Practical Scrappers challenge...

Gotta go rescue some smoking chicken!

Thanks for stopping by! :)
