A Tailored Happy Birthday

I did a birthday card for a friends birthday which is fast approaching.  She is a no-nonsense - beautiful woman, I wanted something very tailored yet with a fem fingerprint.  This is a 6"X6" card, 3 layers, the ribbon from "Sweethearts" is one of my favorite ribbons, I printed it first on the patterned paper then cut it three times using the Imagine and layered it on the card, added a few highlights and shadows and used some pop dots to mount it to the paper.  Printing the ribbon first on the pp gives it a very subtle addition of dimension.  The tag was colored with Copics and then run through the computer.  We are getting ready for a huge Winter storm to roll through - dumping feet of snow into the Sierras and leaving us wet wet wet here in the valley through the entire weekend, brrrrrr, where is that rain coat, lol.  Have a great Friday, Hugs

I would have sworn that ribbon was the real McCoy, not a printed version. It's fantastic..... I love the striped paper, the ribbon, the tag....
Stay iside, stay safe and warm
