{twisted} card

I loved last weeks card sketch at Twisted Sketches!  And get this, the twist? Ribbon.  I love it when the scrappy planets align and I can combine an awesome sketch using an embellishment I adore!

Here is the fabulous sketch:

Here is my card: Happy Birthday

My friend Patti sent me some beautiful Strano ribbon for Christmas. While I was working on this card and kind of stuck on what to do, Patti called me!  Such a nice surprise, love chatting with her so much!  So, I got off the phone, saw the lovely jar of ribbon she had sent and found the solution to my dilemma, that pretty pink polka dot ribbon!  Thanks, friend!  :) 

I'm also using this card for a challenge Amy has going on over at My Sketch World.  Her challenge is to use a recycled item on your card.  See that cute little snowman on my card?  My sister used it as a tag on her gift to me at Christmas.  I hid the ribbon hole in his hat with the snowflake button.  :)  There are lots of great challenges going on at MSW this month!  The message board is full is wonderful people and there is some awesome inspiration in the gallery!  

Brian and I are taking this card to a birthday party this afternoon.  He is happy with it and that's all that matters to this momma.  Happy Saturday, friends!
