Birthday Wishes

Good Morning Everyone, 

Can ya'll believe its Friday? Seriously? Where did this week go -- (hmm, I think I say that alot because these days are just flying by!!!) I am so thankful for Friday - excited to see some friends, hang out and just veg out and *chillax* ;) !!

 I am so glad that I could play along with the awesome ladies at the Color Throwdown and their Basic Grey "Ambrosia" inspired challenge - I love these colors and I adore the Ambrosia papers so I had to use them in this card. And I 
loved Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch #98 this week -  as always! I also loved the Just Pleat it challenge from SCS this week - so I used it all to create this bday card for a dear friend of mine which is full of birthday wishes!

And here is how it turned out :

I had a lot of fun making my card - especially the pleats - and I fell more in love with BG - yum!

Card Details:
Paper: Basic Grey Ambrosia
Stamps: Verve
Ink: Stazon Black
Accessories: Grey ribbon from stash, bling from Martha, Nesties, K & Co bling, black glaze pen from Sakura

Do you guys have any fun weekend plans? I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!! And also - if you want to play a guessing game - hop on over to the Cinema Saturday blog today (friday) and take a peek at the sneak peeks posted there and see if you can guess the movie for this week's challenge!! 

Thank you SO much for visiting!!!
Big hugs and sunny smiles from the heart!!!
Sankari :)

Now this, I LOVE! Love your saturated colors, the fabulous pleating (I don't think I've seen it done with sheer ribbon before....looks fantastic!), and of course, some great Basic Grey! We're just enjoying some family time as summer is close to wrapping up! Enjoy your downtime! :>
