I'm always on the lookout for a new birthday stamp set. This year the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog delivered! This card features one of the stamps from the new Patterned Party stamp set, and I can't wait to use the other stamps in the set as well. I make a lot of different kinds of cards, but it seems that I use birthday and thank you cards more than any others. This card could easily be made more masculine by changing out the colors and removing the ribbon (maybe substitute a strip of card stock or a piece of twine instead). I inked up the present stamp with my Stampin' Write markers (Marina Mist and Pink Pirouette) so that I could have them be more than one color. The dotted background was done with a textured impressions folder for the Big Shot (love those texture folders). I punched a pink oval with the Window Punch after I stamped the "happy birthday" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. Happy unBirthday (or happy birthday as the case may be) to all of you!
