Simply from Scraps
This card was made solely from scraps of cardstock and designer paper I had accumulated. Even the Sage Shadow Card had been cut before but never used. I found the Top Note in Chocolate Chip in my bag of Earth Elements scraps and it pulled the card together. I ran a Close to Cocoa scrap through the Big Shot with the Swirls Scribbles Sizzlits Die and then stuck a scrap of Sage Shadow in the Cherry Blossom Embosslits Die folder and ran it through the Big Shot. A corner rounder punch on the scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock as well as the bottom corners of the card itself softened the lines of this card. Even the "happy birthday" was stamped (Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set) on scrap cardstock and then punched out with the Word Window punch. A couple gold brads and Sage Shadow 1/4" grosgrain ribbon finished it off.
