Patti’s Birthday Card

I created today’s birthday card for my dear friend Patti using elements from a QVC kit.  I chose these pieces because I love the colors and the hand-stitched background paper.  I also love the way the negative space within the chipboard seems to be “filled” by the color-coordinated paper! 

What do you think of the pretty polka dot ribbon I stapled to the chipboard?  To me, it seems to wave hello! 

Cards are such a joy to create and to give.  How many of you are making your own holiday cards, tags, or gifts this season?

    I'm hoping to make cards for the kids. They're getting gift cards this year. I also want to make a set of cards and folder for the DIL. I love your card, it is so pretty!
