Today’s card is such a fun birthday card! Sometimes I like to make different birthday cards, out of the ordinary, something unexpected.
My unexpected element today is a bold Berry Burst ruffled ribbon. I’ve mentioned how I love the crinkled seam binding and I like to ruffle it loosely on a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive. Underneath the ribbon I’ve tucked a strip of Lemon Lime Twist card stock punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. These two colors look SO good together!
Actually, my husband helped me design this card! He’s very artistic and many times he advises me when I’m unsure of a layout. I really like the way he arranged the daisies, I would never even think of adding them! Pretty neat to have a designing husband 🙂

Welcome to the June 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month’s theme, Pick a “B,” features projects inspired by Babies, Birthdays and Brides to name few. You may just get a glimpse of new catalog products while you hop with us today.
Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
The “B” in my card today is BIRTHDAY!! We always need birthday cards, don’t we, so this is a great “B” to choose. This sweet little “happy birthday” sentiment is from one of my new favorite stamp sets called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I mean, even the name of the stamp set makes you want it, right? 🙂
Today I’m using the Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack. This pack contains lots of individual cards with designs on the front and the back. This is a 3″ x 4″ card with a wreath on it and a light flower pattern on the edges.
I angled this card on top of a panel of Berry Burst card stock which was embossed with the new – and darling – Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
A few die-cut leaves, a little wooden element, and a pretty ribbon finish off the card. The color theme for my card is from pages 56 and 57 of our annual catalog: Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive. I’m crazy about this combination!

Welcome to the Blog Hop for May 2017. This month our theme is “Sneak Peek”. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Prettypapercards, or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Peggy Noe.
Today’s card is a sneak peek of the new set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. This stamp set has 32 stamps and many of them are sentiments in adorable fonts. That’s one thing I look for in a stamp set ~ good sentiments. When you need a card, the main thing is the right sentiment. Once you have that you can coordinate all the rest of the card around that sentiment.
And the best stamp sets are those with both fabulous sentiments AND pretty things to go with them! Look at these sweet flowers and pods and leaves! They are darling and just what I needed to make this card.
Pretty Pointer: The clear dots that look like pearls are really dots of glue from the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Just put a tiny “bubble” of glue on your card (and in this case, several bubbles!) and set it aside to dry. It’s a great way to create your own embellishments!
Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently, you are at my blog – Peggy Noe, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next on the list.
