Celebrate The Occasion Challenge # 28: Birthday, Follow the Sketch

Hello everyone,

Its time for your weekly challenge at Celebrate the Occasion! This week the theme is Birthday but you have to follow the sketch provided.

I really wanted to use this more lace for my project and I really wanted to use this Recollections printed cardstock I found in Michael's. The Elegance set includes 5 sheets of 5 different black and white paper (25 sheets) for $3.99, but I used a 40% off coupon with it. I love the thickness of the paper so you could actually use them as the base for your card.

What was used:
Cuttlebug Seeing Spots Embossing folder
Recollections Cardstock
Recollections Elegance Printed Cardstock
Recollections Floral Embellishments
Recollections Rhinestone Stickers
Black satin and cream lace ribbons
Happy Birthday Sticker

Remember that the prize for August is a $25 gift certificate to Papertrey Ink. Please visit Celebrate the Occasion and get inspired by DT2 and share your projects to inspire us.

Happy scrapping!
