Joi's Birthday

My new friend and downline, Joi, has her birthday today. I've been trying to make her a card all week and my cards were just 'blah' so I'd given up! Well, I just thought I'd have a quick go at the sketch today from SCS and I came up with this! I'm going to drive the card over to her house and leave it at her front door while she visits her mum (shhhh, don't tell her!).

Look at this cute rose made out of Stampin' Up's seam binding ribbon. I was taught how to do this from a tutorial from a fellow SU demo in Dorset, England, Jo Dumbleton. Here's her video. It's really easy to follow ... and the results are FABULOUS! Thanks Jo!

Stamps : Build a Cuupcake, Distressed Dots
Ink : Concord Crush, Rose Red, Lucky Limeade
Cardstock : Shimmery White, Rose Red
Accessories : Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon, 1/2 Crystals, Dimensionals, SU Stampin' Write Markers
