SIP 29 Another Birthday

 Hey peeps!  I have another birthday card for you....this one is pretty similar to yesterday's CCMC card!  Check out this sketch from Stamp Ink Paper:

SIP Sketch Challenge 29 800

This time I used some beautiful MME papers from the Stella & Ruby line called Mabel.  I love that the sketch allows me to use a bunch of these pretty papers!  I did do some Mint Macaron stamping on one of the banners with an older Cornish Heritage Farms stamp because this is for my sister and she raises bees!  The sentiment is from Papertrey and is stamped in Tangelo Twist.  I mounted all the papers on a Mint Macaron card base:

Although it's a bit hard to see, I also did some stitching around the edge of the card; some sponging and speckling on the sentiment circle, and I tied my Tangelo Twist baker's twine with a wee bit of Linen thread:

I just love these colors & prints!  Thanks for visiting today!

I got this beautiful wooden Nativity set after Christmas for ONE DOLLAR at Goodwill!  Now my ceramic one won't be in so much danger, LOL!  She had fun lining the wooden figures up (excuse the bed head, too!):
