Happy Birthday

After my birthday- when my blogging friends showered me with cards- I decided I had better get with it and make some birthday cards to share- it was so much fun to get snail mail!!!

I have a few Birthdays in May, so here is just one…...  The image is from a Grab Bag I purchased from I Brake for Stamps.  I stamped it in black ink on a background done with Spray Starch and Pearl Ex (micro pearl)-the technique is from the Technique Junkies newsletter. I layered it on a panel of Cuttlebug Highlights-also a TJ technique.  I decided to just add a touch of ribbon with a clip- easy to mail hopefully- not too lumpy and bumpy!
Have a great Tuesday!

Love it! My SIL is an Elvis freak & this is a great idea for a card for him. Love how the spray starch technique adds so much glitz but in a subtle way!

I love Elvis! What a fun card. Your technique background is great, too. I really like how you added the ribbon without making it look girly. Great card.

What a fun card. Masculine cards are so tricky and you've really nailed it with this one:)
