Ribbon & Rhinestones Birthday Blog Hop Day 2 & Exclusive Blog Candy.....

Welcome back to day 2 of the Ribbon & Rhinestone's Birthday Blog Hop! I was amazed at all the Fabulous projects the other ladies in the hop created! If you haven't been by the rest of the hop yet, I would highly recommend it. There are some really talented ladies in the hop and I feel so honored they've all chosen to help me celebrate my Birthday ♥

For my day 2 project I wanted to keep the same theme going, so I created another Audrey Hepburn card ;)

I really love the vintage look, so I tried to incorporate a little vintage in with some of the modern too. I used a polka dot printed paper along with a glittery pink card stock. I added Black rhinestones, Flower rhinestones & Grey ribbon from my Etsy shop. I finished off the card with a Birthday rub-on and a bit of color along the edges.

I do love the way it turned out. There is something to be said for simplicity ♥ Your next stop on the hop is Kim. If you get lost along the way, here is the complete line up:
