Happy Birthday to Gingersnap Creations

This past month, the creative team for
(of which I am a part)
have been playing along with the design team for


I have really enjoyed playing along all month and plan
to continue doing so.  Their challenges are fun and
allow you to be 'all sorts of creative'.
The final challenge for February was in honor of
Gingersnap's upcoming 1st birthday.
to make any type of birthday card.
I actually had someone in mind when I made
this one, but I can't say who it is because I know he reads
my blog (no, not my Paul).

This is a really simple card with a few layers.
It features the brand spankin' new
'Lace background' stamp from
It doesn't show up nearly as well in the photo, but
I wanted to keep these colors pretty muted.
Again, if you haven't seen the tutorial on how to make
this NO-sew ribbon border, you can catch the tutorial
over at the Gingersnap blog.

The little details include:
Martha Stewart Eyelet Stationary & Satin ribbon
Prima paper flowers
Stickles in my favorite...platinum
and assorted brads and pearls

Tomorrow night at midnight kicks off another brand new 
challenge over at the Play Date Cafe.
We are using a rather unique 'color combo', so you
will not want to miss it!
