Loopy Birthday!

I'm busy again this weekend as it's my nephews 4th birthday, so with less free time it calls for another quick CAS card.

Over at CAS-ual Fridays challenge they are looking for something loopy! So out came my ribbon box, and I was drawn to the pink ribbons I won in the candy from Make My Monday, and my card was born.

Here it is with the other bits and pieces added, in one of my favourite colour combos of pink and green.

As I've just acquired my Baby Blossoms set ( just in the nick of time before it was retired ) I was itching to play with it, so I wanted to use it on this project. To match the ribbons I stamped 3 single roses in 2 pink inks, and added leaves to 2 of them before cutting them out. I then stamped the frame in green and added a pink sentiment, and stuck the ribbons along the bottom to create 3 loops. A 5" square card had the corners rounded and was put through the Big Shot in a butterfly embossing folder and the frame added. The finishing touch was the addition of 2 gems at the top and bottom of the frame, and the roses placed on 3D pads for dimension.

Recipe : Card = SU Whisper White and a White card from my stash 
Inks = Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, and Certainly Celery
Stamps = Baby Blossoms and Verve
Tools = Big Shot and Butterfly Kisses embossing folder
Extras = Pink ribbons, 3D pads, and gems.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you can come back soon
