Sanne is celebrating her 9th birthday today. She's been excited for weeks and today is finally the day. She wanted us to wake her up at 7am because she didn't want to wait too long for her birthday gifts. Well....we woke her up at 8am so we all could sleep in a little on the first day of our holiday break.

I enjoyed making this birthday card for Sanne. Stamping on white cardstock I used the three flower stamps from the Little Lady set to create a background. The banner was made with the Banner Builder set and dies.

To add a bit of texture to my card, I impressed the stamped background with the Linen & Canvas Impression Plate.

Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream, Stamper's Select White, Aqua Mist) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Farm Fresh) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Little Lady, Banner Builder, Congrats All Ways) | Ink: A Muse Studio (Bermuda, Lichen, Cranberry, Papaya, Shell), Versafine (Onyx Black) | Crystals, adhesive dots: Zva Creative | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Banner Builder Collection, Linen & Canvas Impression Plate), sewing machine

Have a wonderful day!
