Birthday Wishes by Crystal

Hello Ai fans !!
It's Crystal here with a 50th birthday card using the Ruby Rock-it papers , just a perfect fit for this creation. I am using the Birthday Couple sku #T1920 and the Happy Birthday sku#E3578.

 this layer came with a banner so to give it a layered look with dimension, I used a copic marker to match the paper Y28 around the banner to give the look of a shadow

Eunice by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
It's Karen here today...sharing a card with one of the lovely Golden Oldie gals, Eunice (Sku#K1619).
To me, Eunice looks like a no-nonsense office manager.  Or maybe a nearing-retirement teacher?  A librarian who is about to shush you?  So many possibilities...

I am using the pretty At Last papers from Ruby Rock-It, along with some metallic gold chipboard corners, and a gold banner from the At Last Collection.  I popped Eunice up on pop dots, and tied an organdy bow underneath her.

I kept the inside blank (without a sentiment), but jazzed it up a little with a peacock feather.
That's it from me today - happy stamping everyone!

Happy Birhtday by Renee Matarese

Hello Ai Fans!!

We're in week two of our perfect papers challenge.  Hope you're all having fun playing along.  You can win some wonderful stamps from Ai!  This month we've teamed with Ruby Rock-It and we're using their papers, die cuts and embellishments.  Also, Beacon generously shared some of their adhesives with us so that's what I used to glue my card together.

I used two stamps from Art Impressions. 
Large Birthday Cake and GF Happy Birthday.
