Country Kitchen Tea - Happy Birthday

Hi, Friends.......

I'm here to share a sweet and simple birthday card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

It's another circular card that I made with a scalloped die. I like this one for shaped cards because this creation can easily stand on a couple of the scallops that I position at the bottom of the project. One thing about shaped cards, though.....I certainly have a smaller canvas play on. I can't add nearly as much "stuff" to my card as usual. Eeek!!

I am very excited that I *finally* opened up some tea-themed wallpaper border paper that my daughter picked up at a thrift store for me a long time ago. It's been in my Coffee/Tea stash for ages and I am glad to use it here today. It reminds me of a sunny country kitchen....esp with these butter and sky blue colors.

Supplies used include:
Sizzix - Circles, Scallop die set
Cardz-TV - Potpourri stamp set
Versamark Ink
Blue Embossing Powder
Thrift Store Wallpaper Border Paper
Core'dinations/Darice Cardstock
Crinkle Ribbon from stash

Happy sunshiny spring!!! Thanks for stopping by on the hop.
