PE – Happy Birthday Dorothy!

PE-Birthday-Dorothy-wm

Hello again!

It is time for another challenge over on the Pink Elephant! This week it is a color challenge with the colors being: Bright Pink, Chocolate & White. The design team also got to use a digital stamp from The Greeting Farm … I love their stamps!!!

If you haven’t tried digital stamps they are fun and easy … you don’t have to pay for postage. Most of them you get them immediately after you check out and you can print them in any size you want.

I selected Dorothy Anya to create my card today. I also used Taylor’s Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge (TECC70) sketch for the layout of my card.

Recently I created a card that had a large button threaded through my ribbon, this reminded me that a year or two ago I purchased a heap of Making Memories grommets which I haven’t done much with … if you bend the prongs down these are perfect to thread through your ribbon so I will be using these a lot more in the future.

Recipe:

Stamps: Dorothy Anya Digital Stamps – The Greeting Farm; Sentiment – JustRite Stampers

Paper: White; Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose & Pink Flamingo DP – SU

Other: Black Ink; Pink Grommet; Brown Grosgrain Ribbon; Circle Punches; Brown Brads; Foam Tape; Copics

I quite agree with what you've said about digi images (although I do love my stamps) Frances - the whole thing is just so quick and if you need a certain kind of image at the very last minute it's just perfect.
Having said that my printer is flashing at the moment and won't print so it's a good job I did my card Friday and not now.
Love your card and I seem to think I have some of those gromment things - must dig them out.

Wonderful card Frances!! I just love the Dorothy Anya (and every other Anya!! lol). Great idea to use the grommet for the ribbon. I am so going to snag that idea!!
