Hello!  I really loved the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches this week and knew it would be perfect for a birthday card for my son's girlfriend.  
She likes red and black, I thought this turned out so cute!  (Ok, so when I previewed this post the card didn't look so's much cuter in person!!!  Trust me.)
The Blue Ribbon stamp set is so fun to work with! It comes with several different sentiments.  I did not have any red or black DSP that I wanted to use so I used embossing folders to dress up the strips of card stock.

You can't tell from the photo, but the Happy Birthday circle is mounted with Dimensionals.

Stamp Set:  Blue Ribbon, Fresh Vintage (2012 Sale-A-Bration)
Paper:  Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink:  Basic Black, Real Red
Punch:  2-3/8" Scallop Circle
Extras:  Dimensionals, Big Shot, Argyle & Chevron Embossing Folders

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Tomorrow I'll post the Journal I made for Chelsea's gift.
