Stampsmith DT Lucy Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,
I made a couple RAK Birthday cards for the ladies in the Stampsmith Yahoo group. I used one of the stamps from the Lucy Full sheet available in The Stampsmith Shop. Another single layer Clean and Simple card for me.

Lucy was stamped on glossy white CS with black dye ink. I used a scallop square die cut on a folded piece of CS to make the card. Added a sentiment from Stampin' Up and a bright ribbon.

Challenges for Lucy:

Charisma Cardz: Bithday/Celebrations

Ginger Snap Creations: Single Layer Card

Rainbow Lady: Pick one of previous challenges - Edge it (fancy edges)

Sweet Stampin: Favorite Song - "They Say It's Your Birthday" by The Beatles

Card Makin Mamas: Girlie

Just a quickie post. So that's all for me today.

Karen
