Belated birthday greetings, Judie!

Oops, missed the date again because I didn’t have time to post on here before I went to work yesterday (first day back, you know how it is).

Anyway, I meant to say Happy Birthday, Judie! This is Judie’s birthday card – and yes, Judie is the fourth member of my team to have a birthday in December. Remarkable, considering that I have a relatively small team.

I wanted to make something quirky with Aviary and this is what I came up with – although I kind of wish I’d used a paler ink for the background as it’s a bit crazy. Love Melon Mambo with Basic Black though – and the new scallop ribbon is a winner every time.

Stamps: Aviary, Happiest of Birthdays (hostess)
Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Scallop dots ribbon, linen thread, 1 ¼” circle punch, 1 3/8” circle punch, Scallop Circle Punch

  1. Helen, this card is so in your face, it's lovely. The black is perfect - it wouldn't be so striking if it had been done in paler colours. Think I may have to CASE it. LOL

  2. I agree! The black is perfect!! I love the cages stamped randomly and your little owl is so sweet! A beautiful and fun card!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
