Cas-ual Fridays

This card is being entered in the Cas-ual Fridays #CFC40.  The challenge is to create something in honor of Mardi Gras/Party card with ribbon.  I decided to enter two cards.  This simple Happy Birthday card and a Whimsical Be Happy card which was also submitted to another challenge iSpy Sketches which you can read about in previous post.

To make this card:

I started with a white A2 cardstock base.  I used some plaid pattern paper cut at 3" x 4-1/4".  Using my circle punches (CM) I cut one at 1-1/4" on white the other at 1-1/2" in taffy (Close to My Heart paper) .  Stamp the image on the white circle using black ink, stamp a second one on extra scrap in red ink.  Cut the flower only out and mount on top of the one stamped on the circle.  Color the leaves in green.  I also cut a small piece of white cardstock 1" x 1" and stamped the Happy Birthday in cranberry ink.
To finish the card:

I cut a strip of 1" x 4-1/4" taffy and used my scallop edges scissors to trim.  Add this trim to the back of the plaid pattern paper.  I then adhered the red polka dot ribbon over the top of this peice, attached a bow and hang the message with a green safty pin.  I also added three green brads to the top left corner around the circles.

Simple and sweet!

Catch the Frenzy!
