To design my card I used the New S5-131 A2 Matting Basics A, S5-135 A2 Fancy Ribbon Threader die templates designed by Cindy EchtinawSpellbinders along with S4-367 Back To Basics Tags die templates.  I have to tell you I absolutely LOVE the New Nestabilities® Card Creator Collection!!  It is so quick and easy to use!!

To start I stamped the peony image from CR-03755 Seeds Of Summer stamp set from JustRite Papercraft on to watercolor paper using Rich Cocoa ink.  Then I colored the image using Distress Markers (colors listed below) from Ranger.

After I colored the image then I used S5-135 A2 Fancy Ribbon Threader die template from the Nestabilities® Card Creator Collection to to cut/emboss the Fancy Ribbon Threader mat for my card.  I also used Herbal Garden cardstock and S5-131 A2 Matting Basics A for the background.  To create the tag I used S4-367 Back To Basics Tags and a sentiment from CR-03815 Large Fancy Sentiments stamp set from JustRite Papercraft.  Before removing the die template from the tag and floral image I used inked the inside edges of the paper using the die template as a stencil.

Here is a close up of the tag.  I added a bow to the top using May Arts Ribbon Sampler Spring Green from 

Here is a close up of the bottom of the card and you can see how I threaded the pink velvet ribbon.  The ribbon is from May Arts Ribbon Sampler Vintage Pink from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  I also added Pearl Jellie Dots along the bottom using Scrap Happy Sheer Glue and the Stick "EM" Tool all from The Rubber Cafe'.

On a more personal note I want to say a Special Happy Birthday to my baby boy who is not so much of a little guy any more LOL!

This is a picture from his birthday party on Saturday.  Happy Birthday Evan!!!  I can't believe you are already 10 years old!!  Double digits--Woo-Hoo!!!  You are such an Amazing kid--so loving, caring, smart talented and funny!!  I hope you have a Fantastic Birthday!!  I love you--mom xoxoxoxo
