Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today is St. Patrick's Day!  You know what that means!  Spring and Easter are just around the corner!  Gretchen Barron is sharing a gorgeous birthday card with us today.  Let's see what she has to say about it.

In your Easter bonnet ... This little hat in the Garden From the Heart stamp set is so darling and perfect for Easter or any spring occasion. Here I've used it for a Birthday card and combined it with Thoroughly Modern Designer Series Paper, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla cardstocks, 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon and the Scallop Trim Border and Corner Punches. Click HERE to view a tutorial on how to use these great new punches. The hat on the card is paper pieced -- stamping it first on a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock, cutting it out, adding some highlights and shadows with a sponge and some Soft Suede Ink and then cutting out just the ribbon that was stamped on a scrap of DSP and adhering it with SNAIL adhesive.  More pictures and details are available on my blog at 

Thanks so much for sharing with us, Gretchen!

Until next week...
Happy stampin'!
