Kim's Birthday Blog Hop

Kim from My Favorite Things is celebrating a birthday this weekend and the girls have decided to throw a blog hop to celebrate. All the details and the list of participants is on Kim's Blog which you can fine HERE.

For my card I used "Who's that Birthday Girl?" Since the MFT colors are pink and black, I pulled out my Making Memories Sabrina paper pack. The panel at the back is MFT's digital paper pack called Take Note. Since the birthday girl is off to party, her dress is covered with Black Diamond Stickles.

Here is a close-up of the card. I also decided to make this card to go along with this week's Wednesday Stamp Club challenge. I used three different ribbons. The first is the large black polka dot ribbon from MFT's Chick Flick collection. Once I had the card assembled, the dots did not quite line up on either side of the image, so I added pearl dots to each of the polka dots and then just added two more on the other side of the image to balance it out. The center ribbon is also from MFT. It is from the Royal Ribbons collection. It is a yummy collection of satin ribbons. The last ribbon is some Carnation Organdy ribbon from Close to my Heart. Unfortunately this color was retired years ago, but I still had an unopened roll that I broke open for this card.


Below is a list of the other participants on the Blog Hop.

Happy Hopping! Don't forget to stop by Kim's Blog and leave her some birthday love!
