Homespun Happy Birthday

Good evening my sweet readers! Today I'm sharing a card that I made for The Ribbon Reel Challenge.

The theme this time around is "home spun". I like it because it feels like a throwback to Autumn, my favorite season!
love this picture!
I didn't have anything apples, but I had one of the HUGE peonies from Prima that has been sitting in my flower drawer for YEARS. I bought it for another project that never happened obviously, so I'm glad to be able to use it on something.

Card stock-Papertrey Ink
patterned papers-Authentique
stamps-Just Rite
Die-Spellbinders (splendid circles)
burlap ribbon-My Mind's Eye
black seam binding-Hug Snug

Thanks for coming by to visit, I appreciate it so much!


  1. WOW--that large flower is just stunning! Well done!

  2. Beautiful Card! Love the colors and that big flower. You are right it reminds me of Autumn which is also my favorite season.

  3. That rose is fantastic and so reminds me of the basket of apples. Lovely creation yet again, Kristi.

  4. Beautiful! Love the texture in this card and all the layers!
    Thanks for stopping by - my eyes have not yet frozen, but had issues with my nose the other day, lol! Still awfully cold here, -28 with the wind chill. My fave thing to do in this weather is hide under a quilt and read, but alas life must go on - work, chores, groceries, Mom stuff you know!
    Hope it's warmer where you are! Looking forward to the weekend - almost there!
    Shanna :)
