Birthday Bash Stampin' Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the Birthday Bash Stampin' Friends Blog Hop!  This month it is all about birthdays. You will see links for the rest of the hoppers below my projects. 

When going through my stash over the past weekend, I ran across a tiny black frame I had picked up at the dollar store several years ago. Instead of $1, it was $.25! It was because it had some minor flaws. Other than the frame & the tiny piece of cheese cloth under the bird, all products are Stampin' Up!

The "flaws" on the frame, were these tiny impressions from being packed too tightly against other frames. I covered those flaws up with washi tape! Wouldn't this make a cute duo to give someone for their birthday? 

The color layered behind the bird and layered on the card is Peekaboo Peach. It is one of the 2016-2018 In Colors that will be retiring. If you love a peachy color like I do, I would get the ink pad, reinker and any of the ribbon or paper you need right away. There is always a run on the retiring In Colors when it gets a bit closer to June and they sell out quick. 

I love all the layers on this card. The main background paper is a scrap I had from the Wood Textures Designer Series Stack. It gave a great neutral background for the torn Peekaboo Peach piece and the bold black & white flower and die cut. I took a piece of Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding and cut the finished sides from a strip of it, then pulled the edges to fray them. I used some of the solid black bakers twine along with it and tied it around the layers. I think the washi tape perfectly finished the card. Full supply list below the list of links for the rest of the hoppers.
