Happy Birthday Deb!

Here we go again - a wedding reception this weekend,a birthday today and not a card in sight. This photo (don't look to closely) is made up of components that I'd already prepared when I was deciding what to do for next week's Stamp Camp. I used other designs due to time constraints and popped these into a bag. Today I pulled out all the bits n' bobs to see what I could come up with. The cup stamp is from Tea Shoppe which has been inked using our marker pens ( softening the colours with an aqua painter), run through the bigshot with the top note die and then again using the perfect polka dots embossing folder. The background is lucky limeade cardstock (oooh, I do love this and the other In Colour shades) which has been stamped with Mixed Bunch in white Staz-On. The verse is from the Precious Butterflies set - do hope this doesn't retire when the new catalogue arrives - this has been cut to shape with the framelits labels die. A white ribbon to finish. Voila!

To be fair, the ink on the cup does look better in real life, not so patchy as in the photo. Too late to change, it's in the mail!
