Just Because

Hello friends! I can't believe how this week is flying by! I had a wonderful holiday yesterday and my birthday is tomorrow! Oh, and stay tuned because I think I should celebrate my birthday by giving one of you lucky readers a present! ;)

I made this card for the Moxie Fab World Beautiful Borders challenge using my fab new Rubbernecker stamps! I've been dying to use this huge background stamp (4.25 x 5.5") since I got it and I had a brilliant idea to stamp the background three times in varying shades of blue, cut them into border strips, and reassemble on the front of the card. I finished with some shabby ribbon, a stamped tag, and a vintage button.
If you haven't seen yet, there is a little contest over on the Rubbernecker blog to come up with a clever nickname for the new design team! Head over and give us your best suggestions - the winner will take home a $25 gift certificate to the store! How cool is that?!

Supplies - Stamps (RN), Ink - Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Not Quite Navy (SU!), Cardstock - Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla (SU!), Ribbon (Memriemare), Button (vintage), Twine (PTI), Cuttlebug, Tag Die (Spellbinders)
