Classy Cards 'n Such Birthday Prayer

Hi again, everyone, and thank you for stopping by today.  If I do say so myself.....this card turned out super cute!  I just love these GORGEOUS papers and embellishments from Classy Cards 'n Such!  Here is my card:
And here is what I used:  I started with two different patterned papers from the Webster's Pages Spring Market Collection.  The combination of the red gingham and the pink floral is just lovely together.  Next, I used the Spellbinders Labels Eighteen Die-Cut to make a journaling mat.  The birthday sentiment on that mat is a rub-on from the Inspirational Birthday Rubz set.  These rub-ons are priced at just $3 and have several great sentiments on each sheet.  

I embellished the sentiment with some of the love mini rose buds from Zva Creative in Classic Red, Soft Olive and White. I also added a small bow made with a length of Chalk White Seam Binding as well as one of the gorgeous White Pearl Swirls for that elegant touch I was trying to achieve.  All the lovely products at Classy Cards 'n Such make it easy to create beautiful cards and layouts.  Some machine stitching, and all these wonderful supplies, and......whala!  This was easy using such great products.
I hope you will stop by to do some shopping in the Classy Cards 'n Such Store and remember to use COUPON CODE:  KAREN-10 to save an additional 10% off your entire order.

Before I run off, I'd like to share this card in these challenges:

Twist of Faith Challenges - End of Day/Sunset Colors - I guess the sky can be red when the sun is setting.

Card Mania Challenges - Challenge #25 - Pearls and/or Gems

Craft-Dee Bowz Challenge - July Challenge - Anything Goes With Handmade Bow - My bow is hand-made with seam binding.  I used the white, but I do have a tutorial showing how to hand-dye this lovely trim.  Making hand-made bows is always the perfect touch!
