Take A Spin Sweet and Sour Birthday

Happy Easter! Tomorrow I will be celebrating what Jesus did for me. I also wanted to tell you that I am sorry I have not posted in a while. Some things that were not expected happened. My mom had to have triple heart bypass surgery. Besides working and doing what I need to do at home, my mom has needed help too. She keeps getting better everyday. I know she will be happy to be able to do things without being out of breath and tired all of the time. Enough of that for now.
This is the first card I have made for my upcoming birthday card class. I still need to make 3 more of them. I have had this one day for about a week, but I am just now getting around to posting it.
I used sweet and sour specialty designer series paper. I love the bright colors! For the stamped image I used pumpkin pie and rose red markers on the take a spin stamp. The pom pom trim is melon mambo and unfortunately, it was a sale-a-bration item which is no longer available. They may have something similar when the new catalog comes out in July. We will have to wait and see. I used rose red, very vanilla, and daffodil delight cardstock. The 5/8" grosgrain ribbon is pumpkin pie. Of course, I used the game spinner hand on the take a spin image. The only punch used on this card is the scallop trim border.

In the end, I think this makes a very cute birthday card. You can tell me what you think by leaving a comment. Thanks.

Now go-n-stamp!!
