Trying New Things

Good Sunday Morning Everyone!

Bit unusual for me to post on a Sunday; but I didn't get a chance to post on Friday when I made this card, so I thought I'd go ahead and do it now. I just bought an iPhone (no not a 4) but I LOVE it and I have barely been able to put it down!! You will notice that I am now on Twitter, so please come along and follow me @ rtjmom. I'm new to that as well but I've been having a blast with it.
Anyhow, on to the card. I used Razzleberry as my card base and then added a layer of Coredinations card stock which I ran through my CB with the Swirls folder and then sanded to have the white show through. This was my first experience with this paper and I have to say, I do really like it. I bought three sheets of it in different colors to experiment with and I am looking forward to doing more with it. I added a small piece of Crushed Curry which I matted on to a piece of Grey before adding the Razzleberry ribbon and buttons down the side. The flourish stamps on the bottom of the center piece are from SU's Priceless set which I stamped in Razzleberry ink. The "Birthday Wishes" sentiment is from Sincere Salutations and was stamped in ColorBox Charcoal Grey Chalk ink.
Quick and easy. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

This is beautiful. I love those colors together. So pretty. Love those flourishes and they fit so well with the embossing.
