A little Birthday Romance


Happy Monday Peeps!
I finally got a chance to play with a few of my new goodies, some items from the Stampin Up Occasions Mini. 
I love this new set called "Bordering on Romance". I stamped this image from that set onto some confetti cream card stock with black stazon and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. I love how fun these flowers are to color. I am also entering this in The Paper Players All You Need Is Love Challenge, who wouldn't "LOVE" some of these pretty flowers for their birthday?
 I also tried out one of my new edgelit border dies.  Really love how this edge looks, alto it was a bit tricky for me the first time to get the cuts just right so they lined up. The DSP on here is also from the new occasions mini, Twitterpatted, and it has some nice colors in it. 
The base of the card is riding hood red and is a 5 x 10 inch piece folded in half. 


Also new is the beautiful pleated ribbon, this one in riding hood red also. I added some basic pearls and an antique brad by the sentiment flag.

Well, that is all from me for now, thanks so much for stopping by and we will talk again soon!
