Bright Birthday

I went to grab a birthday card from my stash yesterday and realized I only had one left--yikes! So, you'll probably be seeing several of these over the next few weeks. For this one my only objective was to use bright, fun colors.

I framed the sentiment with a rub-on frame I've had in my stash forever, and I used up the last of this double-stitched ribbon, too. It feels good to use up the old to make way for the new. More about that tomorrow...

Stamps: A Little Birthday Cheer (SU)
Paper: Kraft, Taken with Teal, PTI white
Ink: Taken with Teal
Accessories: Martha Stewart scallop dot punch, corner rounder punch, rub-on (American Crafts), buttons (BasicGrey), ribbon (unknown)

Annie! This is so fresh and so clean. I love it, and yes, to make room for more stuff is always good, especially when you make use of your other stuff. ;)

LoVe This! The bright colors against the kraft background is a great contrast. And I like how you used the border punch on both ends of your mat. I just got this punch myself.
