BASIC VANILLA SAND BIRTHDAY

Today's card uses Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try 11/29/08 and Color Challenge #195 of Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Sahara Sand.

The main image from Upsy Daisy was stamped first with Jet Black Staz-On, the stamped again in Sahara Sand Classic Ink using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for a shadowed effect. The sentiment was stamped with Jet Black Staz-On onto Very Vanilla prior to dry embossing with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The large Sahara Sand background piece was stamped in Versamark with the Polka Dota background stamp. I'm not wild about my use of the Very Vanilla 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, but am out of Basic Black, and it does not come in Sahara Sand (but sure wish it did for this card!).RECIPE
Stamps: Upsy Daisy, Polka Dot Background
Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Sahara Sand CS
Ink: Jet Black Staz-On, Sahara Sand Classic, and Versamark
Embellishments: Very Vanilla 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, CM Custom Cutting System for circle cutting (non-SU), Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and Cuttlebug machine (non-SU)
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

This is so gorgeous!! I know what you mean about the Sahara Sand grosgrain...they do sell it at Pink Hedgehog though!! I still miss all the organdy, is it to much to ask for SU to have a ribbon for every cardstock color??!!LOL!!
