Spiffy Birthday

And so it begins....Today is Day 5 of My Favorite Things New Release Countdown
and my first official post as a member of the design team! I can't wait to share the release
with you and you'd better save your pennies, because it's a great one!

My card uses the new TERRIFIC TIES stamp set and it comes with a variety of ties,
but I decided to work with the bowties because I believe they're making
a comeback in the fashion world. You too?

So how fun is this? And you gotta love some neon bowties, right?
I stamped each of the bowties on colored cardstock in Versamark ink, then
clear embossed them. I love how it brings out the details and adds a bit of texture, too.

I stamped the spiffy sentiment on a banner and attached everything to a panel
cut with the new CROSS STITCH RECTANGLE STAX. I love the cross stitch detail!

Make sure you visit the MFT blog for links to the rest of the design team to view
their awesome projects and stop by tomorrow for Day 4 of the New Release Countdown!


  1. Such a fun card, Donna! I love the tone on tone effect with clear EP and the patterns on your neon bow ties are fabulous! Beautiful crisp, clean design, too! I'm so happy you'll be part of the MFT Team...Congrats again!

  2. Nice card. Your gray bkgrd enchances the bright colored bow ties and looks terrific. :)

  3. Welcome, Donna!!! And what a premier card it is! You know I love nothing more than grey... gorgeous with those neon bow-ties!!! *sigh* sadly, I spent way too many pennies at another grand opening this week... but that $75 win would put a nice little dent in my wish list, me thinks...
