Wishing a Warm Birthday


My post today is a birthday card for a male friend who likes his coffee with a lot of cream! His wife will know who he is...hehe... Most of my cards are pretty simple to begin with, but I choose to be especially so in this case. Just a bit of ribbon with a brad to highlight the sentiment tag. I dyed the ribbon with my Copic marker to match.

Papers: Basic Grey Sugared, SU Basic Black, PTI White
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black, Copic markers
Nestabilities tag die
Add-ons: satin ribbon from Walmart, American Crafts Elements brad

I love this. Very simple but classy! Would love to know where the stamps come from, especially the sentiment! Love the sentiment and for those of us in Upper Michigan, it would be very fitting!
