Birthday Girl

Yesterday was my lovely, and oh so talented, stamping buddy Emma's birthday - Happy Birthday my sweet, I hope you had a lovely day!!

For Emma's card I used my new Enjoy the Ride set with the fabulous matching die - I'm so in love with this cute car! I'm also loving Hawai'in Shores teamed with Melon Berry and made a matching notebook for Emma to write her stamping wish lists in!

Recipe: (PTI unless stated)

Stamps: Enjoy the Ride/Fresh Alphabet/Polka Dot Basics/Journalling Lines
Card: Stamper's Select White/Hawai'in Shores/Melon Berry
Ink: Hawai'in Shores/Melon Berry/True Black
Ribbon & Buttons: Melon Berry
Other: Felt/Cuttlebug Flower Dies/Copics/Enjoy the Ride Dies/Circle Nestabilites(Spellbinders)/Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder

I used Taylor's current sketch challenge for the card - here's the sketch:

... and the card:

The notebook:

I die cut the notebook covers and all the pages using Papertrey's Tabbed Mini Book Page, then stamped the inside covers with 'Polka Dot Basics', and all the pages with with the line stamp from 'Journalling Lines'.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!
