Happy Birthday, Shirley!

Monday was my mother-in-law's birthday. Shirley's favorite color is blue, so I try to use it for her whenever I can. I just got my Sale-a-bration preorder, and SU is offering some gorgeous free stuff this year! Besides the great stamp sets, there is also Designer Series paper AND ribbon, both of which I used on the card. The SAB stamp set that I used is called Polka Dot Punches, and the stamps all coordinate with our punches. Whoohoo! After I put the card together, I thought it looked a little plain, so I added the stamped circles on the cardfront. Much better!
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Celebrate Everything, Polka Dot Punches, Seeing Spots; Paper: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Delicate Dots DSP; Ink: Bashful Blue, So Saffron; Accessories: pewter Build-a-Brad, 5 petal flower punch, 1/2" circle punch, cutter kit, Certainly Celery polytwill ribbon, So Saffron 5/8" grosgrain ribbon
Happy stamping!

Very cute card, I can't wait to case it. But I will have to wait, at least until after Feb 1. I'm trying to be good this year and watch my spending a little, so I'm going to earn my Sale-a-bration sets instead of buying them.
