Wild Card # 46

Well...I'm finally back. I had a really bad cold and couldn't even think of going into my scrap room. I didn't think it was possible, but who knew? This is card # 46 called Hanukkah. I went a different route with this card...Birthday!! I had a perfect sentiment for it. I went with primary colours to keep it generic. I love the colour!

  • Stampin'up Orange polka dot ribbon
  • Amy R stamps
  • CTMH-Outdoor denim ink

I decided to not include a pic of the inside as it was just yellow lined...but the inside sentiment contnues from the front to little cake. All supplies for this card came from my fav local Scrapping store DAT'S.
