Happy Birthday to Me? or PPC #14

Okay, so maybe it is a bit tacky to make yourself a birthday card. But really, the card isn't for me. It just happens to be a birthday card on my birthday. Nothing wrong with that, right?
The color combo comes from PCC's 14th color challenge and includes Cameo Coral, Ballet Blue, and Handsome Hunter. Of course, in a little over a month, all three of these will be retired. I guess I better use them while I can.
My favorite part of this card is its ribbon. I dyed it myself! It's amazing what a little reinker & some white ribbon can do. This is the first time trying to dye my own ribbon, but, now that I have, I know you'll be seeing more. It was such fun & so easy! I love finding new uses for my reinkers!!


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I'm sorry I'm so lame and didn't send you a card! What kind of up-line am I anyway? Yikes! I hope you have a GREAT day! Take care!

  2. Beautiful card! And I love how you dyed your own ribbon... you always have a perfect match -- very clever!

  5. Andrea you rock for dying your own ribbon. It looks amazing and I just might consider that myself. I love how you popped up part of your flower with circles. Happy Birthday to you and I think it is great that you made a card on your birthday that is a birthday card. Hope it was a super day! Great card and thanks for playing with us at PPC on your birthday! Hope you will join us next week with another great creation.
