Life is a celebration

Yes indeed it is a celebration today, so without further ado it is my greatest pleasure to sing at the top of my voice (can you hear me?) HAPPY BIRTHDAY AIMES! I wish you all the best things in the world and hopefully a little something has arrived at chez toi ;D She truly is the sweetest and most thoughtful of friends and wouldn't you know she's a dab hand at the ol' crafting too.

My card for today may look a little familiar, the layout is the same as the father's day card I made here. This one I made first and loved the look of it so much I adapted it for the other one. I will be entering it in the stitch challenge over at crafty creations.

Have a great day xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Hello again and sanded background, ink: melon mambo and old olive. Card stock: Melon mambo and whisper white. Ribbon: Melon mambo polka dot grosgrain ribbon.

Hi Emma,
Love the colours in this card. I must have a go at pleating ribbon - it is so effective.

This is the card which inspired me to do the pleated DSP. I know, I know, mine is nothing like it but it triggered something in my head, LOL!
