SS INK - make a wish! can a week go by so quickly?! I haven't blogged much this week (sorry about that!), but before the weekend starts, I wanted to share with you a birthday card I created for last night's card making night. I host a get together every month (always the Third Thursday) where my customers can come create 4 cards for $10. It's always such a fun evening and last night wasn't any was a packed house! Always a good problem to have! ;)

The 4 cards we created can be found HERE, HERE, and HERE. I decided to try to go a little more masculine with my fourth card since the others had pinks and flowers and butterflies and such. I couldn't help but be drawn towards the Retro Fresh DSP in the Occasions Catalog...and the Banner Framelits, of course!

And, because I wasn't able to stretch some of the same patterns of DSP from the pack (or the ribbon) for all 20+ guests to use, I made a second variation that the guests could create using a different background, sentiment, and twine. I like giving them options so they can make the card look just like they want it to!

markers - Tangerine Tango, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron
