Crazy 4 Challenges # 34

Here is the card I made for my daughter's 30th birthday today.
I was looking for inspiration, and saw the gorgeous cards on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.
Their challenge is to copy one of the DT creations either layout, theme, colour or the whole card.
They are all gorgeous, I chose a card by Silke Kittmann so I could use  my new paper from Stampin' Up.

The base cardstock is from the neutrals pack,  dp is called bella bleu and ribbon all from SU
from Victoria
I embossed cream linen cardstock with the Happy Birthday embossing folder by Crafts-Too.
It's the same size as a Cuttlebug I just cut it shorter.
I cut the large scallop border after drawing round a small oval, didn't have a punch to do that.
 Clear stamp set is by Magenta lovely for adding layered designs.
Pearl brads from Hobby House.
The flower is made with punched circles.
If you put them through the ribbler quite a few times it breaks the fibers and makes the paper more pliable.
I wraped the ribbon around my hand a couple of times and used the large brad to pin it.
Don't make a hole in the ribbon just bend the legs of the brad around it.

Thanks for stopping by,
Love  Cherie    //*.*\\
