Birthday Wishes card

My birthday was one week ago today.  One of my friends I've made through Stampin'Up! sent me a card that I thought was simple, but really pretty.  I thought I'd make a similar card to share with you.  Since I'd already used up the exact print papers she used from the Print Poetry DSP, I changed around the colors and give you my version.  Thanks for the idea Michelle!

Stamps:  Bring on the Cake
Ink: Raspberry Ripple
Paper:  Very Vanilla cardstock and Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack
Accessories:  Raspberry Ripple Stitched Ribbon, Scallop Edge Border Punch
I think this might very well be the easiest card I've ever made in my whole life!  Everything was attached to a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of Very Vanilla cardstock.  This was then attached to a folded half sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Add a little edge punching on one of the strips of print DSP, and wrapping the ribbon around it and tying into a square knot.  What could be easier?  Since you don't need many supplies for the card, this would be a great basic card sketch if you're a new stamper just getting started. 

Another great thing about this card sketch is how easy it would be to make this into any kind of card you need by just changing the sentiment.  I can see this would be great for all your thank you, thinking of you, get well, etc, etc, etc.  As long as you've got a sentiment, you're all set!

Hey, just wanted to remark that this is two days in a row that I've gotten a post in.  Is it time to start celebrating yet?  Oh yes, it is Cinco de Mayo, so why not celebrate anyway???  Have a fabulous day.  I need to get outside and get some Vitamin K (sunshine).  Happy Sunday!  Sharon
