Happy Birthday Michelle

More motivation to get out the ribbons and card stock.... the daughter of a friend will be 18 this week. I like the Grant pearlescent CS so here it is again.

The creamy figured paper is from a lovely collection sent to me from my dear friend Lisa at
The Craft's Meow: a big stack from La Creme which is full of my favourite non-colours (black and white, and cream and gray). She also sent the ribbon and I've just noticed that I put the bow on back-to-front. Ah well, nobody's perfect, least of all me!! I added some cream and gray pearls and a birthday greeting on a scrap of cream parchment that was lurking at the bottom of a box.

Thankyou Lisa for the inspiration. I think you could say its working, and........Happy Birthday Michelle!


  1. This is a beautiful card and will be loved by its recipient - a teenager will really like an elegant card like this. I too enjoy the La Creme papers - very classic and elegant and yes, definitely your favorite non-colors!

  2. That Lisa sure knows how to take care of us!! Your card is so elegant and soft... Michelle will LOVE it! Have a super day.... :)

  3. Oh, so elegant and lovely! You can't tell at all about the ribbon, so no worries. I'm glad you're crafting again. Perhaps my package arrived at just the right time. (A good excuse to make myself feel better after hanging onto it forever before finally posting!)

    Love and hugs across the many miles,


love to know what you think.......
