Simple Birthday Card

This pattern was chosen because it looks good for both girls and boys...(It represents pink theme and purple theme). I made a ribbon using purple crepe paper instead of pink ribbon, so that it will be more outstanding out of the background paper. It is suitable for either boys or girls.

A traditional rope was used to tie the "Happy Birthday" tag and stamped it on the card. A piece of very thick double-tape was used, to make an illusion like "the tag is hanging".The white flower was glued on the purple ribbon. I made it myself by using two different ribbons (white & green) and stitched them together to make a little rose with two leaves.With this card, I joined:

  3. Kathleen = Regret to use low-definition camera (web-cam) to take the earliest pictures. Now, I've changed the pictures using my HD camera. :-D

  4. Clean and simple looks so effective but is so hard to achieve when you want to add a bit here and there!
