For My Sweet Friend

Happy Saturday!! Today I have a birthday card to share with you.  Though I'm a bit behind, I have used last Sunday's Featured Stamper Challenge from Splitcoast for the layout of this card.....congrats to the wonderfully talented Tricia Traxler aka T. Joy for being chosen!!  I chose this beautiful card to re-create.  I normally do not like to tilt anything on my cards, however, the way she also angled the ribbon really won me over!  Thanks for the inspiration, Tricia!!

I will also be submitting this card to the following challenges:
The Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast is to choose an item from Bella Soleil, which carries the most gorgeous Tuscan decor.....I chose this beautiful holy water font since it reminded me of this SEI Entrada designer paper I just received this week....yummy!!;
Crafty Catz: Buttons;
Fab n Funky: Things with Wings.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Be Joyful';
Cardstock: Stampin Up Lucky Limeade and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: SEI 'Entrada';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Stampin Up 'Lucky Limeade', 'Barely Banana', 'Peach Parfait', and 'Blush Blossom';
Accessories: Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight, Labels Eight and Fancy Framed Tags Two, Stampin Up Button, Want2Scrap Rhinestones, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, EK Success Dotted Scallop Border Punch, Paper Piercer (template for straight edges....freehand for shapes), Stampin Up Organza ribbons, foam tape, sponge daubers;
