Picking back up with Birthdays

I needed more birthday cards this week. I tried a new technique on this one. I'd seen these beautiful crepe paper roses on Danielle Flanders blog, I haven't quite mastered those but I thought I could use my crepe paper and make a ruffle. So I did a quick running stitch along the folded edge of a strip of plain ol' streamer crepe paper then gathered it like I would a regular fabric ruffle. I touched up the edge with a bit of pink Stickle and layered it under a strip of desert sand card stock. Doesn't it look cute peeking out from under that scalloped edge. Just like and old fashioned petticoat. Thanks for stopping by and I'll talk to you again soon.
