Happy Birthday Rebecca!

Today is my sweet friend, Rebecca's birthday! Happy birthday dear! :)

I wanted to try out a fun chevron pattern for my dear friend, so I pulled out some DSP in Basic Gray, Melon Mambo and Lucky Limeade. I pieced together some patterned paper rhombus shapes. It's not perfect, but I'm pretty pleased with my first attempt. Then I rolled a flower using some Melon Mambo Striped Grosgrain ribbon (here's a tutorial on how to make these). I tucked some Lucky Limeade Ruffled ribbon as leaves. Then I layered some shapes die cut with the Lots of Tags die in Basic Gray and Melon Mambo, then added the sentiment from SU!'s Friendly Phrases using some Stampin' Dimensionals.

Thanks for peeking in today! Don't forget to play along with my I {Heart} Ribbon Challenge! You have a few more days to link up your card with Grosgrain Ribbon!


  1. Okay, that is AMAZING! I can't even begin to figure out how you got your shapes to match up much less the STRIPES to match!

    Great job!

  2. Thanks Nina! I can't wait to see it in person!
