Retro Birthday Card

My dear friend Cathy had a birthday last week, and I decided to go retro with her birthday card.  I pulled out a Stampin' Up! set call Smile from many many years ago, and updated it with current designer series paper and ribbon...

(Click to enlarge pictures.)

This birthday card was a quick one to make, and with hindsight I see where could have used some current embellishments in addition to the ribbon.  Such is the price I pay for making the card at the last minute and rushing it to the post office in hopes it would arrive on time (which it did!)!  Cathy, if you're reading this, I hope you had a wonderful birthday!

I have a ton (well, four sets) of cards and projects ready to post, but I will do so over the next few days, as I've recently learned that if I make several posts in one day, often the extra posts get overlooked. We can't have that!  

Until tomorrow, Happy Stamping!

That's a cute card! I love their older sets too. Hope Cathy had a great birthday.
