Friday Feature with Raisin Boat

Good Morning!  I hope you've had a great week.  I know I am super happy its Friday - I am so ready for the weekend.

This month's challenge at Raisin Boat is really simple - Birthday.  Just use your favorite Raisin Boat stamps to create a birthday card and you're in the running to win some fabulous RB stamps.  Don't have any?  Well, then it's a good time to start your trial membership.  For $5.99 you get 2 stamp sets to play with and when you're done, you just send them back and anxiously await your next 2 stamp sets to arrive in your mailbox.

So here's the card I made to share with you today.  I created it using the colors from ColourQ and the sketch from Sketch n Stash.  My stashed item would have to be the embossing folder - haven't used that one in awhile.

My card features the All In Toile set.  I kept it pretty simple, but I think it looks really elegant.  It probably needs a bow or bling, but like it said I kept it pretty simple.

Now head on over to the Raisin Boat blog to play along with us.

Stamps:  All In Toile (Raisin Boat)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, Ladybug Red
Card stock:  Kraft (SU!), Black Granite, Red Delicious (Raisin Boat)
Tools:  border punch (EK Success), 7/8" & 1" circle punches, Cuttlebug, Script emb folder
Embellishments:  Pear Tart BH Collection ribbon (Raisin Boat)
