Happy Birthday, Stephanie!

I am amazingly blessed to serve on the Lovebug Creations Creative Team (think: Rumple Ribbons!!) with some tremendously talented and simply GREAT women. 

One, our gal Stephanie, is turning 40 today!  Welcome to this side of the "hill", Stephanie!!

Here is the card I've sent:


I used a fun "paper bag" technique for this card. I folded a small white paper bag and used the inside of the bag to hold a greeting tag that's reusable by our birthday girl.  (That's the cupcake.)  Inside are some flowers that I cut from coffee filters and colored using Copic's Air Brush System.  The outside greeting was reverse-cut using a Silhouette file, and garnished with Prima roses. And of course, there's Rumple Ribbon to make it jolly!
