A VERY quick birthday card

Here is a card I put together in a bit of a hurry for my grandfather in laws wife. She is usually still at her house in Florida for her birthday and we just have a BBQ for her in the summer but this year they came back together in April so she was here and of course it slipped my mind until late the night before.

The picture really doesn't do this card justice.

The rosette itself is from the Ribbons and Rosettes cricut cartridge but everything else (including the home made embossing folder used on it) is cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge from CTMH.

The purple piece was sprayed with one of the CTMH spray pens with a mix of reinker, alcohol (you can use water but I find the alcohol dries faster) and CTMH pearl paint so it has some real shimmer to it. I then ran it through my cuttlebug with my home made embossing folder (I have another class on how to do this scheduled for June 24) and inked the embossing with some white ink.
The ribbon is a sheer organza one I had in my stash but it just didn't do enough for the card so I cut my border on fit to length for my card front from the cartridge and stuck it on the middle of my ribbon. It really is on their straight and stuck down well I promise even though the picture doesn't look that way! :)

The numbers are from the dimensional element numbers that come bundled with the Art Philosophy cartridge and I just used my Amethyst inkpad right on them to make them match my paper.


Thanks so much for your comment! I love reading them!!!
