I feel like celebrating - I've got some fun news :)


Today is an exciting day for me because I get to make a special announcement!  I have been chosen to be a member of the Scrapbookaholic By Abby design team!  I will be having fun doing projects a couple times a month based on different challenges that Abby comes up with, and you'll be able to play along and join in the fun :)

Today Abby is introducing the entire design team!  There's a ton of talented ladies to bring you lots of inspiration.  I hope you'll go visit Abby now to see the whole line up.

Today I have used a fabulous digi from Kich N Bleus.  It's from their Celebrate Collection.  Be sure and stop by their store page if you're interested in viewing the designs for purchase, and you can check out their blog for fun and inspiration.  

The card is the standard 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2 inch size.  The top is embossed with the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug Folder.  I used some stitched ribbon that came from the dollar section of Target.  I added a border along the bottom that was punched with the Fiskars Threading Water punch.  The border is about 1 and 1/8 inch tall, and stretches 4 and 1/4 inches across the card front.

I printed the image, trimmed it down to 3 by 4 and 1/4, and colored it in using mostly Stampin' Write makers from Stampin Up and a few Copics.  I matted it on some green cardstock that measures 3 adn 1/4 by 4 and 1/2.  I attached this with some pop dots to raise it up from the card base.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you like my simple celebration themed card :)  Enjoy meeting Abby's new design team!  I can't wait to get to know them better myself.
