Birthday Card

Click HERE for the current Paper Cutz Challenge #116

I made this for my friend, that I have know since I was five. Around the age of seven we started roller skating, we practically lived there. If the rink was open we were there, and we didn't stop until we were about 19. So, I knew when I got this cartridge, that I was going to use this cut for her birthday card. So here it is!

Nifty Fifties cartridge pg. 43 cut at 3.5"
For the edges of the skate I used Stampin Up-lavender lace
The red polka dot paper is from DCWV- dots, stripes & plaids
Sentiment stamp is from PTI- Birthday bash sentiments
Brads for the wheels
Grosgrain black ribbon
Foam tape
