Birthday Card ~ Tattered Birthday To You (post #1)

Today I have three cards to share with you.
They are all birthday cards and were made using the same paper and stamp pads.
Sometimes when I do a color challenge I try to see how many different ways I can make cards so they do not all look the same.
For my first card I tried to give it a tattered feel.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front stamped with the Birthday To You stamp from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment stamped on the Mini Bookplate Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment stamp from the Happy Thoughts from Verve Stamps.
*Watermelon pattern paper from CTMH.
*Watermelon stamp pad from CTMH.
*Tempting Turquoise stamp pad from Stampin Up.
*Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. (I won these beautiful ribbons at RRR)

May your day always be filled with love.

Please join me and play along with these terrific challenges!
