Birthday Wishes

Today I have a somewhat 'clean and simple' card
I created especially for the Impression Obsession challenge
which is 'Birthday Wishes'.!



I spotted this little piece of grosgrain ribbon in my stash and
decided to build my entire card around it and use it up....
I guess you could call it a 'snippet' of ribbon....lol!

I knew I wanted to use it on a wreath of sorts,
so I cut an IO wreath die (DIE262-Y).
Now this is a pretty cool die as it also comes with tiny flowers to add,
but I opted to leave them off this time as I wanted it as CAS
as I could get it!

The wreath itself was cut from scrap paper and
the embossed background was from my already 'EB' stash.

I think it will make a fun and pretty Spring/Summer
birthday card. I did stamp a birthday sentiment inside
which I guess I neglected to take a photo of!

Love this Diane! What vibrant colours, such a wonderful pop of colour yet still CAS. Nice one!

Thank you for coming to play in the Snippets Playground :)

Hugs

I love me a pretty wreath, especially in yellow! And the ribbon is so colorful and fun. You wouldn't believe all the ribbon I have (or maybe you would), plus three jars of scrap ribbon pieces. I'm always saying I need to design some cards around those ribbon scraps, but it never happens. You, however, went for it and it's fabulous! Enjoy your spring gardening. It got too hot in the sun for me yesterday. It might have been in the 70's at the airport, but it was in the 80's at my house!
