Todays make is a card to enter The Ribbon Girls March Challenge.  The must have is “twine or ribbon” so since yesterday I had to explain to my dear Husband and Sons WHY I received a bag of bakers twine by post from a lovely friend it seemed bakers twine was the order of the day! (Thank-you Sam!)

The challenge is also sponsored by Lili of the Valley which made me go digging in my stash!  A while back I bought a magazine and with it came a whole heap of gorgeous printed images from… you guessed it… Lili of the Valley so I decided to use those since I haven’t got my hands on any of their stamps as yet!

I am also entering this in the Cupcake Crafts Challenge for *Sparkle* as the cardstock is pearlescent and the brad is as one of my darling boys pointed out "pretty, pretty, shiny, shiny."  So I hope that qualifies as Sparkle :-)

In Mad March we have a whole string of birthdays so that is my focus this week… get them all done and posted. My Nanna’s birthday is one of the first so I picked out a beautiful Lili of the Valley image that lended its self to the colour that my Nanna used to tell us was her favourite… 

Sky Blue Pink with Polka dots!

So this is my interpretation of that with bakers twine featuring down the side with a happy birthday slider so it’s a little tactile and interactive.

I used:
Image: Lili of the Valley
Flower: Stampin’ Up! Punches.
Brad: Making Memories “Paperie Rouge”
Leaves: Create-a-flower Cuttlebug die and embossing folder.
Slider: “Fruit and tags” Cuttlebug cutting die and “Happy Birthday 2x2.75” embossing folder.
Patterned Paper: “The birthday brights” from Australian Simply Cards Magazine.
Punch: Martha Stewart Doily Lace.
Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circle.
Souffle white pen (for lettering).
Faber Castell Pencils for colouring the stamp.
