You Make Me Smile Card

***Scroll Down for Birthday Sundaes #5***
I couldn't sleep tonight so I thought I would put together a quick card for a few challenges.  Do you remember how happy your first bike made you when you were little?  I do, and that was the inspiration for my card tonight!  My oldest daughter got her first bike for Easter several years ago.  She squealed with excitement so I thought this would be a fitting card for Easter or Springtime!
For this card, I needed to add a border, so I used my sewing machine with the thread pulled out to make a nice, even stitch around the edges.   I am also having so much fun playing with my new stamps and ribbon from My Craft Spot!  I am loving this soft Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon!  It ties so easily and nicely! 
Products Used:
  • Scrap Pieces of American Crafts CS (leftover from my bunny cards)
  • Stampin' Up! Top Note Die
  • Kate ABC's Cricut Cartridge
  • My Craft Spot Sweet Sentiments #1 Stamp Set
  • My Craft Spot Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon
Challenges:
Scraps 4 Fun Use Your Scraps Challenge
FCCB Spring Fling Cricut Crawl (use the colors pink, green, yellow)
GAB #11 Theme Challenge (Borders)

It is Palm Sunday today and I hope you have a very blessed day!   Enjoy your family, friends, or what ever makes you happy today!  Thanks for stopping by!
