Celebrate Your Day!

Celebrate Your Day is a complete case....but I can't remember from who! If this is your card...I will gladly give you the credit, just please let me know. I had seen it while blog hopping one day. Let me tell you, as simple as it looked, I've never torn a card apart so many times LOL! And I think I actually tore it apart one more time after this picture because my real red strip is smaller hee hee hee!

Okay, so off to what I did. I stamped the top part of a whisper white base with the speckle stamp in Itty Bitty Backgrounds in only orange classic ink, then taking my word window punch and my bag of bold bright scraps (gasp....yes I used scraps on a card) I punched out four or five of the following colors: only orange, yoyo yellow, tempting turquoise, and real red. I then adhered them to the back of a strip 3/4" x 5 1/4" (you'll have to trim the edges to get them all to fit) and tied a 1/4" temp turq. grosgrain ribbon. Then at the bottom of the card from the Celebrate stamp set, I stamped celebrate in temp. turq. and your day in real red. I then punched 3 - 3/4" circles out of yoyo yellow and inserted the turq brad from the bold bright brads and attached them to the card using stampin dimensionals. Nothing exquisite, but I seen it and thought it would be fun to try....and I'll pass next time J/K LOL!

Have a great day, and if you have any questions please let me know.
