Happy Birthday

Hi, everyone! Sorry I have been MIA this past week. We have been so busy trying to find and buy a house that I really haven't had time to do anything else. The house we had previously put a bid on went sour, so we had to start over. So we went up to Clarksville this past weekend and found a house that we love. We put an offer in and it was accepted. We close on Dec. 5. We are so excited!! We move from here the middle of December. So now that you know the great news, I will get on with the card!

I really went out of my comfort zone with this card. I usually stick to rectangle cards. For the circle base I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. The scalloped circle frame was from Mini Monograms. The patterned paper is Sassafras Lass. I used Stampin Up!'s A Flower for all Seasons stamp set. I colored it in with Prisma Pencils and OMS. The "Happy Birthday" is from Lizzie Anne Designs. Hope you all enjoy. Thanks for looking. Have a great day!

Hello, everyone! This week has been so crazy that I haven't had a lot of time to update or craft or comment! We are still in the process of counter offering on the house we want to buy! It is so stressful! We should know something by tomorrow, maybe.
Now on to the card! This is my take on the SCS blog group challenge #1. We were supposed to use black and blue. I used Whisper White cardstock as my base. I used Prima Marketing patterned paper (blue with white polka dots). Basic Black to mat the PP. The "HI" is American Crafts Thickers in felt. The scalloped circle was cut using the Cricut and Mini Monograms. I put the holes in each scallop by using my eyelet setter. The ribbon is just from my stash of ribbons. No idea of the brand. Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
