Happy Birthday Karen!

We're having a birthday party and you're invited!  Today is the uber talented, Karen Baker's birthday and a few of us have decided to give her an online card party to celebrate.  .

We're using the sketch from Artful Delight ASC#37 and lots of burlap because it's one of Karen's favorite ribbons.

I used Real Wood Paper as one of my layers...love that stuff.  The background is May Arts Wired Burlap Ribbon.  I removed the wires and attached the ribbon with Scor-Tape for a secure hold.

Happy Birthday, Karen!!



Every party needs favors so the Ribbon Lady is giving away 2 rolls of ribbon to one lucky blog hopper AND two more rolls if you go to Karen's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday!

Here's the list for the hop:


Thanks for joining us!  Don't forget to comment on each and wish Karen a Happy Birthday!
