I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring HAPPY BIRTHDAY projects. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Anastasia Radloff’s blog. She had a fabulous project!
I decided to use the Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set from the new Beginner’s Brochure. As I live in Canberra, Australia, I have magnolias coming in bloom right now and they are a colour close to Rich Razzleberry, so I thought I would use that for the flowers. The other colours seemed to choose themselves.
I wanted to use the beautiful lace trim but it was lost on the vanilla card so I popped in a strip of Rich Razzleberry Card. I think it slipped up when this pic was taken. OOPs! Still, I’m happy with the card . I love the Happy Birthday stamp in the set and I’m addicted to the Labels dies. I like that they can be used to make a “pocket”.

I like how you accented the ribbon using the cardstock–really makes it pop! I also like the leaf punches in vellum and cardstock, those little touches make your card extra special. Thanks for sharing!
I cannot tell you how happy I am to learn that there are purple magnolias!! Your card is beautiful. I love the magnolia and the pocket. TFS
