My Friend

Happy Friday and thank Heaven for another vacation day!
I've been burning up the last of my days so I don't lose them before the end of the year and I have to say it's so nice to just take random days here and there. This will be my last for a while though so I intend to enjoy it!

Today's card is  another birthday card. I can't decide if it looks wintery or not with the cooler color scheme, but I do know I absolutely LOVE that Mixed Bunch stamp set!

My card base is a standard half sheet of Bashful Blue folded in half.
I stamped a panel of Neenah Solar White with Bashful Blue ink and the lacy flower from the Mixed Bunch stamp set. I also stamped the flower once more with Not Quite Navy and used Ridinghood Red to stamp the small lacy circle. The flower was punched out using the Punch Blossom punch and I used Spellbinders Standard Circles Small and Classic Scallop Circles Lg to do the other two pieces.
The sentiment was stamped with Not Quite Navy and punched out with the Modern Label punch.

Next, I wrapped a piece of pleated ribbon around one end of my stamped white panel and then layered it on a slightly larger panel of Not Quite Navy. I added a Scallop Trim punched border of Ruby Red along the bottom edge with and then  hand trimmed four small flags from a scrap of Twitterpated DSP I had. These were all adhered to the reverse side of the Not Quite Navy panel before adhering it all in place on the card.

The flower came next with a few dimensionals between the layers to pop it up.
With that in place, I finished off with the sentiment at the top left and a trio of buttons below it.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I hope to see you here again on Monday!
