Celebrate with A Little Bit Crafty

This is just a quick reminder that you still have a couple more weeks to join in the fun of the current challenge at
The theme all this month is

You can be celebrating anything...
a new baby, a new job, a new house, a retirement, etc.

I chose to celebrate a birthday with my Guest Designer card.
Can't you just hear that sweet little girl giggling as she dances with all of those balloons?
The image is called, appropriately enough, "Abby Celebrating" and is from the incredibly talented Mo Manning.

The gathered ribbon is actually seam binding.  To get the gather, just start at one of the cut ends and gently pull a couple of the strings in the center.  Slowly work your way down adjusting the gathers as you go.  I love being able to take something and turn into something else with no more than a little bit of work other supplies or expense.

The buttons were from the dollar bind at Michaels.
That awesome sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's
Stylish Sentiments Birthday stamp set.
All other items used for this card are listed at the bottom of this post.
