A 65th birthday card

A friend called me last night and asked if I could make her a 65th birthday card (she wanted to support my fundraising for Congo by buying some cards.) So, I made her this card, using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: ribbon pleating.

I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (vintage cream, hibiscus burst), stamps (stitches & swirls, botanical silhouettes), button & die (quatrefoil cover plate). The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye and the ribbon is Offray. The numbers were cut using my Quickutz Studio dies.

I stamped the backgroud with Stitches and Swirls and selectively inked the sentiments from Botanical Silhouettes (the "TH" is from THANK you.)

Thanks for looking!

Wonderful 65th birthday card. I like how Stitches and Swirls looks in the background.

Very beautiful card! Quite clever with the selective stamping. The font is so pretty. I am going to have to use that technique.
