Today's sketch measures 3.75 x 8.5 to fit into a legal sized envelope.
Ivory card stock is used for the base, followed by a layer of purple. The designer paper is from The Angel Company (Angelee) that is cut to 2" wide by 8 1/4. I added a strip of satin ribbon (also from the TAC's Angelee's collection) down the center and added a ribbon slide. I actually ran my ATG gun tape down the ribbon to adhere it - and it worked great!
The main image is stamped in Versamagic (purple hydrangea) and then layered over a piece of light green card stock. The label surrounding the happy birthday sentiment is chipboard that I colored with the same ink, and attached with brads that match the ribbon slide.
Stamps: The Angel Company - flower from Simply Devine and the sentiment is a GWP stamp.

My husband and I will be celebrating Christmas alone this year due to bad weather all over Washington state. We just don't want to risk getting into an accident traveling to visit my family. The forecast is for more freezing temperatures and snow/rain in the coming days. Better to play it safe and celebrate at a later date. I wish you, your family and loved ones a very safe and peaceful holiday season!
