Happy Birthday, Kirsta!

This is the card that I made for my SIL Kirsta's birthday. There's just a tiny bit of stamping on this one. I stamped the birthday sentiment on a transparency and then layered that over this Basic Grey "blush" paper from one of my 6x6 pads. The ribbon is Stampin' Up's stitched Cranberry ribbon from last catalog year and it covers a piece of Sticky Strip holding the transparency in place. The transparency is also folded over the top of the sheet of designer paper and adhered to the back. The Bayou Blue cardstock is stamped in tone-on-tone ink with the Paisley background stamp.

This card is the card I made with the other half of the Basic Grey paper. It's just a simple birthday card. I've been trying to make more birthday cards because those are the kind I use most for myself and/or get requests for.

The scallop piece is the new Groovy Guava from Stampin' Up, dotted around the edges with my white gel pen. The brown ribbon is a retired piece, also from SU.

This second card though, is bothering me. I feel like it needs something, but I'm just not sure what. If you have suggestions, please feel free to leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!
