Party Time Shabby Chic Birthday Celebration Card

Party Time Shabby Chic Birthday Celebration Card with Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It’s time to party at Really Reasonable Ribbon!  The theme for our new challenge is “Celebrate”.  Once again, I’ve pulled out pretty ribbons from the Pink & Green Mix Ribbon Club Assortment.  This time I’ve paired it up with “oldie but goodie” Graphic 45’s Time to Celebrate collection.  I think you’re going to love the way these ribbons enhance my Party Time Shabby Chic Birthday Celebration card.

When you work with pretty papers and ribbons you feel like spring came early!  I hope I’ve added some sunshine to your day with this Party Time Shabby Chic Birthday Celebration card.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh, my word, Kathy! You never cease to amaze me with your creative cards! there are so many lovely details to look at! I know this may be designed for a little girl in mind, but this old girl LOVES it! You do amazing things with these papers and all your well coordinated embellishments! I adore all the pockets and tags on the inside and the clever way you’ve offset the chipboard tag 1/2’s on the front. Wonderful make! Now I’ve got LOTS of catching up to do with you on your blog! Sending hugs!

    Who wouldn’t want to receive this card for their birthday?! All those little “tuck ins” with their celebratory messages just add to the joy of this card. Thanks for sharing this design.

    Love love your cards. I always look for your post first. Delightful is the word I think of when looking at today’s (and everyday) card.

    OMG! I absolutely adore this card. Once again those beautiful color combinations. I didn’t start following craft paper blogs until 2016 (boy what I was missing) when I found Graphic45 and YOU. I didn’t realize Time to Celebrate was from 2014. I surely hope they bring it back as I think it is one of their prettiest. I also went back to see the projects and found the adorable clock decorated in this paper, WOW. Can’t wait to see more of your ideas using these colors.
