Birthday Wishes

Hello Sweet Friends,

**Woohoo, this birthday wishes card was chosen as THE WINNER for the City Crafters Blog. Thank you!**

I want to thank everyone for their kind words on my post yesterday.  It was hard on my husband and the others from here that served with the crew in Hawaii.  

On a happier note, I have a quick little card to share. 

I started this card by adding my patterned paper to my Whisper White cardstock and distressing the edges with tea stain ink.  A doily was cut in half and added to the card front followed by a die cut circle from a vintage book was added to the upper right of the card front. I then die cut and stamped the roses in Cotton Candy ink adding them to the center of the doily and vintage book print garnishing with some sweet little pearls. 

A length of grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around the middle of the card front and tied in a  bow embellishing with a button, pearl and a birthday wishes sentiment tag all tied together with some twine.  For a finishing touch, three pearls were added to the lower right corner. 

Inspiration is from the City Crafter Challenge.  

Really Reasonable Ribbon: Black, White and one accent color.
Thank you for spending a little bit of time with me today! I hope you have a great week!
~Tammy~

Be still, my heart! I love the simplicity of this, and yet it's not so simple because of the b/w pattern. Great job, my dear. :)
