I joined a swap on Splitcoast Stampers and it was for birthday cards. I made this one from a sketch provided on sheetload of cards blog. I used Kraft paper as a base and Black, Pixie Pink, & Pretty in Pink. I think it turned out pretty good.
The picture is a bit askew... The card isn't crooked. I would do things a bit differently if I was making the card again. I would put ribbon on the bottom of the striped piece before I mounted it down lol. But for my first attempt it isn't too bad.
