Winter Happy Birthday


I made this card for two challenges - the JUGS10 sketch challenge and this week's CAS44 Color Challenge which was to use red, brown and white or cream. Of course, this card isn't exactly Clean and Simple....but at least I got the color part right!

The background paper is from a Christmas paper stack and the brown paper is from Stampin' UP!. I stamped my snowflakes (from Stampin' UP!) and the bird image (from Inkadinkado) on the brown paper with PTI's Vintage Cream ink and then added some Stampendous glittery embossing powder and heat embossed. I added the red dots around the scalloped edges with a red Spica pen for a little more sparkle. The velvet ribbon is from Cosmo Cricket and the striped ribbon is from Stampin' UP!

That's about it! Thanks for looking!
