"Fabulous" Retro Style Birthday Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers! How is it even possible that this is the last week of March?  It's been a busy month for me, as we had 3 family birthdays to celebrate.  My sweet sis-in-law Becky means the world to me and I wanted to create a really special card for her birthday. I found the perfect ribbon in the Spring Rainbow of Color Ribbon Club Assortment to go with the "Fabulous" collection from Authentique.  Honestly, this Tropic Taffeta bow stole the show!

I super love the way this triple loop bow pops against this retro color palette.  As I've mentioned before, I've developed a serious "ribbon crush" for taffeta.  It simply ties the most gorgeous bows, especially when you use your Zutter Bow-it-All tool!  I love to add these loopy string bows to my ribbon clusters for extra fullness.  This one is made with Ivory Burlap String.

I had a blast finishing the inside of this fun retro style birthday card.  The small side pocket contains a personal birthday message from me to Becky.

The larger pocket holds a hand stamped birthday greeting, a fun retro magnet that Becky can put on her fridge, and a little sweet treat.

Thanks for stopping by!
