Close To Bermuda Birthday

Here's a quick card I threw together last night for my club hostess meeting today. I am not a Close To Cocoa fan at all, but am trying to use up some of the colors that are leaving. And, I did like how it turned out with Bermuda Bay! I found a very similar card on a Demo site, and loved the layout. She had ribbon under the circle pieces and a bow tied on the side. Lo and behold, I don't have enough Bermuda Bay ribbon left to do this for as many cards as I needed to prep. So, I dug around and found my Bermuda Bay DSP, and cut strips of the Polka Dot design page. Not the same as ribbon, no, but in a pinch, it will do. I made the bow tie style ribbon piece by folding a 4" piece in to the center on both ends, adhering with a small dot of Tombow, then wrapping a 1 3/8" piece around the center, adhering in the back with another drop of Tombow. All in all, I like this card, and was happy I found a quick substitute for the ribbon! I hope my club enjoys making it later today.

Stamps: Circle Circus, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper/Ink: Bermuda Bay DSP and CS, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Signo Gel Pen
Punches: Modern Label, Word Window, 1 1/4 and 1 3/8" Circles, Scallop Edge

Have a great weekend everyone! I am anxious for my stamping buddies to get here, I have had a rough week, and there company always lifts my spirits!
