She asked that we use the cart "Walk In My Garden" and use flowers! I decided to use a flower pot, and fill it with flowers and add add'l flowers to the outside of the pot!
I cut the Image of the pot & flowers @ 4", added some bling with MS glitter pens, some yellow gross grain ribbon, and a stamp that says it all "THANKS A BUNCH"....(from stampin up) I hope you like it!

I created this card with Paper Doll Dress Up cart and I selected Raggdy Ann, and I used my Gypsy to remove the cut-outs of the face so I could use my facial stamp...I don't know if Raggdy Ann is afraid, surprised, or actually gonna blow out the candles...so I decided to put a sayin "Make A Wish", and I thought the flowers could use some bling on the cake, so I placed mini rhinestones on the flowers, the stamp is from stampin-up, I added some twine, a button, and I thought the card needed some background color, so I striped it with the matching plaid from Ann's bloomers, and topped it with a Red square, I corner punched the red square and used my white gel to make it pop....Voila!!! I hope this gives you inspiration to create some diff background without overpowering the main piece-Raggdy Ann!!! Isn't she cute.....

I was inspired to make this ice cream cone and place a face on the strawberry to give it a little happy look!
I used Sweet Treats cart and cut out the ice cream at 4", I used chocolate cardstock for the background of my card, then I topped it with a torquoise cardstock embossed with the words "happy birthday", I felt that my ice cream cone was a little bland looking so I blinged up the ice cream and strawberry with some glitter, I shaded the cone itself with a "color box" chalk" brown around the edges, then I stamped my word "happy birthday" from stampin up, used my white gel pen to stitch around the chocolate edge of the card, the ribbon of torquoise w/brown dots was my inspiration of colors to use.
Hope you like.....my goal is to have at least (6) feminine birthday cards ready, and (6) male birthday cards..never know when you will need to send one out!

And the card must have a printed sentiment on it.
I chose to use both cartridges, and this is the results.
Here is my recipe: the card is cut @ 5x6 /12", layered with black as the base 4 3/4"x6 1/8"
Red layer 4 1/2"x5 3/4", gray was cut @ 4 1/4"x5 1/2" then embossed with circles embossing folder.
I added blk/wht twine from "The Twinery", & added a plaid bow
from the Wild Card cart=I cut the frame for the stamp @ 6" and the outer part was cut using red-cardstock
from the "Just Because Cards" cart I cut the pick-up truck @ 4"...finishing touch was the doodling in white gel and black ink.
My printed sentiment was from "Stampin Up Stamps" and the red ink used is Ruby Red also from "Stampin-up"
I hope this inspires you to use your cartridges and mix & match to get the look you want!

and a few years ago he bought himself a motorcycle, so my husband and I thought he would enjoy this card,
the motor cycle was cut at 4" from the "Going Places" cart, I used white cardstock to emboss Happy Birthday for the background, and I used gray cardstock to represent the road and added white gel to make the white lines on the road...and yes another purchased card from my recollection stash!...enjoy
I hope he likes it...I will probably enclose a gift card to his favorite Yogurt shop!
It's a '56/57 chevy and some of us are young enough to remember these cool cars (lol) I used my Nifty Fifties cart and did the car image @ 2" and words and Route 66 sign were done @ 1 3/4" the background was embossed with the polka dot folder..added some ribbon and used MS punch. This card should bring back some solid good memories...or make some new memories! Enjoy....
