I used Close to Cocoa textured CS for the background with freestyle stitching (on machine) using white thread. I attached circles punched out of Bashful Blue CS to the edge of the So Saffron Textured CS piece to create a large scalloped look. The ribbon is Certainly Celery wide grosgrain. The "happy" die cut letter stickers are from the Just 4 You Simply Scrappin' Level 3 Hostess gift. I stamped "life" (from the Enjoy Every Moment stamp set) in Close to Cocoa ink and added a Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware frame. Finally, "congratulations" is from the A Perfect Day rub-ons in the Occasions Mini Catalog.
