SSS213...Happy Birthday Friend

I've made a card that is a little different from my norm this week for The Sweet Stop Sketch. I wanted to use some new colors and am challenging myself to make cards without using pattern paper. This is what I came up with.

I used my Silhouette Cameo for a few of the elements of the card. Cutting the center piece with the smaller square cut-out was easy with the Cameo. I also cut the mat pieces and the funky green border. I used a few different embossing folders for texture and the chevron stamp on the main piece. Love Chevrons!!!

Supplies List
Stamps: Grunge Borders, Mini Tags & Sentiments {Sweet N Sassy Stamps}
Paper: Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade & Whisper White {Stampin' Up!}
Ink: Crumb Cake, Island Indigo {Stampin' Up!}
Other: Silhouette Cameo, Gears & Honeycomb embossing folders, clip, green ribbon, Island Indigo Baker's Twine

Now head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog to see what the rest of the Sugar Babies made with the sketch this week and join us by making something with the sketch and linking it up.
