Birthday swap

My Swappers Anonymous friends held another swap--this time for birthday cards. Because really, who doesn't need birthday cards??? I have too many cards that say "hello" or "life is good," and not enough that say happy birthday!

Anyway, here is my submission for the swap. I used Greenhouse Garden in Bermuda Bay and Basic Gray (oh, it rhymes! I get extra credit) stamped on Shimmery White cardstock. So yummy, that paper!

Then I sponged more Basic Gray around the edges and layered it on textured Bermuda. Layered onto the Night and Day DSP (what will we do when that goes away???? fingers crossed for another black and white DSP) and Basic Black. Then textured Bermuda again, more black, all layered onto a Basic Gray card base. The ribbon is the reverse of the Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Grosgrain.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Black brads added just enough accent, and it's all done! The hardest part was using the Stampamajig for all the flowers. LOL

Thanks to my Swappers Anonymous Sisters for great swaps! Love ya!
