Contemporary Birthday Wishes

My ladies who attend my classes almost unanimously voted this card their all time favourite, so I thought it was high time I shared it with you!

Do you like it? It makes use of the now retired Simply Said stamp set, but you could use the new Bright Blossoms set in a similar way or even For Everything, both of which are currently available.

I have layered up the different components with Stampin' Dimensionals - that's foam pads for those who are yet to convert to SU! See my recipe for the ingredients below:

Stamp Sets: Simply Said (Retired), Four Frames, Fun & Fast Notes
Card stock: Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Whisper White.
Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Whisper White, Regal Rose, Basic Black.
Punches: Decorative Label, Modern Label, Word Window, Corner Rounder.
Ribbon: Tempting Turquoise
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Blender Pens.

I have entered three challenges with this card, details of which are listed at the end of this post.
Happy Crafting!

PS: Bonus points to the first person to spot my not-so-deliberate mistake on the card... :) Leave me a comment if you think you have guessed it!

Challenges: Just 3 this week, and all new to me, I love all the DTs work, why not take a look yourself?

Card makin mamas - #49 RUBBER - break out the rubber stamps for this challenge - no digi's allowed!

Craft Punked - #28 SUMMERTIME - bold flowers and bright colours are the signs of summer to me! Unfortunately as a UK resident I cannot accurately say summer this year has had any really sunny weather though...

Raise the Bar Challenge - #108 RED, WHITE AND BLUE - Ok, so I have used Pink instead of Red... I hope they don't mind me bending the rules slightly... I mean pink is just a pale red right?
