Birthday Cards!

These are a couple of birthday cards I made last week. I made the background paper by inking up my Happy Birthday cuttlebug embossing folder with several colors of FiberScraps e-z walnut ink Tintz. I put a piece of white cardstock in the folder and ran it through the cuttlebug. I just used a baby wipe to clean up the folder when I was done. Once the paper was dry, I cut it to size and adhered it to a white card. My best friend, Cindi, was kind enough to let me borrow her Nesties and I cut the ovals and scalloped ovals with those, also using my cuttlebug. The stamps are by studio g, and the ribbon is by offray.

Oh this is so cool! I love the background! I sometimes (ok I do it a lot lately) some sand the cb background. Nestie are great! I just got my first set not to long ago!
