Happy Birthday Gena

It's a little late but it was our niece's birthday the other day so I thought I would share the card I made for her. I used bits and pieces from the Crew Kids Girl Simply Scrappin' Kit. I bought the kit a while ago and had lots left over. I really like how it turned out so here it is:

Stamp set: God's Blessings

Cardstock: Regal Rose, Whisper White

Accessories: Rhinestone brad, Regal Rose wide grosgrain ribbon, stamp-a-ma-jig, paper, flower from simply scrappin' kit, 1" circle punch and the corner rounder punch

I cut the patterned paper and white cardstock to the sizes I wanted then stuck them together by butting them up to each other and using a strip from the kit stuck over the top of the join. I then tied the ribbon into a bow and stuck the flower down over the top. This card is backwards for me because usually I would put the flower on the left hand side but I didn't like the bow on the right so the flower had to go on the right instead. I then punch out a 1" circle from some more patterned paper from the kit to put in the centre of the flower and put the rhinestone brad through all layers before sticking it all down to the card. I then used the stamp-a-ma-jig so that I got the greeting where I wanted it to be.

Hi Kellie

This is a very pretty card - I also love all the other things you have been working on, especually the lovely box you covered - I bet your friend was very pleased with the end result.
