First Birthaday

Happy Thursday everyone! Robin here with my inspiration design of the week for Dies R Us! One of my friends asked me to make a birthday card for her great granddaughter, who will turn one in August; I couldn't possibly say no!

I used Echo Park's "Bundle of Joy" paper pad for the floral and stripe. The edge of the pink dotted paper was cut with Impression Obsession's Border Duo 2 and the edges were sponged with Distress Ink. Next I cut the white Floral Eyelet Border, from Taylored Expressions, and added it between the floral and striped paper. I used two of the dies from Taylored Expressions, Tag Stacklets 1 to make my layered tag.  The flower was made using Elizabeth Craft Big Flowers 1 and Flower Set 2.  My greenery is from the Penny Black die set called Leaves and the name Olivia was cut using Impression Obsession's Alphabet Typewriter UC and Alphabet Typewriter LC.  I glued the letters onto a vellum homemade tag and attached with clear foam tape.  To finish the card I added two butterflies made from Memory Box Pippi Butterfly and Isabella Butterfly dies and added a small button for the center of the flower. 

Don't forget to check out the DRU Blog and see what all the other design team members have created for your inspiration!

Until next week, thanks for stopping by, Robin
