Loonie Stampers Celebrate Char's Birthday

Good morning all!  Today I've been asked to be a part of a blog hop for Charlene, a member of the Loonie Stampers Challenge.  It's her birthday today so we have all surprised her with this blog hop!

This card didn't turn out at all like I had planned.  Funny how that happens.  I used almost all Papertrey Ink products for this one.  I started with a Ripe Avocado base and added a layer of Aqua Mist.  Along the bottom of the card I added a strip of white cardstock and some Green Tea Leaves patterned paper, then tied some white ribbon around it.  I stamped the leaves from Beautiful Blooms in Ripe Avocado and cut them out.  The Fiskars fingertip knife is awesome for doing this!  Finally, I added the sentiment and another strip of patterned paper on the inside of the card.
