happy birthday...

Hello!!  Popping in with a quick post.  Sharing a little card that I made using some yummy Teresa Collins papers and a stamp set from Verve called Small Packages.  The layout is based on the May Viva La Verve week one sketch.   Because I have such a small space to craft in I generally make sure that I put things away once of I have finished up my project, but the pad of Teresa Collins Nine and Co. papers seems to keep making it way back out the kitchen counter so I think I'm going to stop putting it away, lol!!  I just love the soft pretty colors and can't resist using them.  After pulling out several different patterns I got to work.  I stamped the cupcake on two of the papers and did a little paper piecing.  I added some clear Wink of Stella to the cupcake, but it doesn't show up... darn!  Anyway... cut some of the pieces per the sketch, but the panel with the cupcake on it was die cut using the Cupcake Frames die set that coordinates with the Small Packages stamp set.   The edges of all the papers were roughed up a bit before laying everything.  Finished it with a bow tied with some PTI Melon Berry ribbon.  I haven't tied a piece of ribbon around anything in ages... almost thought I forgot how, lol!!   Posting this to the new Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge:  Don't Abandon Coral.  Lots of coral on this card wouldn't you say??

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white; Patterned paper:  Teresa Collins; Stamps and dies:  Verve; Ribbon:  PaperTrey Ink; Inks:  Stampin Up! Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral; Memento London Fog
