Ribbon Weave A Happy Birthday, Twinchie Style!

Remember that ribbon weaved twinchie I made for Technique Tuesday, using ribbon scraps, at Shelly's Images, earlier this week? I promised to show you a card that I made using the twinchie, and today is the day.

I've used the sketches from Happileigh Scrappin' and at Priscilla's Styles. for my card layout. The Happy Birthday and Make A Wish graphic sentiments are from Shelly's Images. Shelly gave these away earlier in the year, as freebie, for her big First Birthday Celebration. I used Promarkers to color in the balloons and cupcake, and add color to the text. The twinchie in the center is made with ribbon weaving using two patterned ribbons from my stash. (See above, for link to the tutorial on how to make your own ribbon weaved twinchie). The flowers are from recollections. Punched greenery made with a punch by Martha Stewart. I've used foam mounting tape to attach the sentiments, for dimension and 3D effect. These pretty pastel papers are also from my stash.
