Birthday Card

 Hi Friends, I got to my craft room the other day. My ankle is getting better everyday. I was really missing playing with paper AND I needed a birthday card.
I combined the Crazy for Challenges sketch this week with the Color Throwdown palette for a simple but pretty card. The stamps are Verve for the Cake and the Happy Birthday sentiment. The tag and wish stamp are Papertrey Ink. No sewing this time, my machine has a foot pedal witch doesn't work with an air cast!! LOL. Paper is Basic Grey Konichiwa.

I have a question for you? What do you do to tame bakers twine that has kinks in it from packaging?
Do you just leave it as is? or do you control it somehow? (my bow has gone haywire!) Thanks. Links below.

Have a great day! Kim :)

  1. Awww, sorry to hear about your ankle.. :o( Glad you got some time to create. Such a cute card.
    Hugz, Z

  2. This is pretty! I love the colors here, got to go dig out that BG paper pad. Beautiful take on that sketch, too. I always have my twine kinking, don't know how to fix it either. Glad you are up for crafting! Hope your ankle isn't too painful.

  3. Hi Kim ! I am not too sure about twine, but I know that other ribbons and fibers can be run through a curling iron. I think it always looks great after that. On a personal note, would you send me your e-mail address ? I couldn't find it here .... to jandelbone@yahoo.com Thx!

  4. Hope your ankle gets better soon. It's no fun being down and out and I've missed your cards. Really cute design on this one. Hugs!

  5. Oh what wonderful sweet card.
