Happy Birthday Erin: 2013 edition!

Today is Erin's birthday, a very special friend! As has become a tradition, Karen & I have joined forces to celebrate!
Since we know Erin loves May Arts & challenges, we decided to use that as our guide!
We chose to play in the Lawnscaping challenge; I pulled out bannerific, swimsuit season and the dewey decimal patterned paper from Lawn Fawn!
I also used ribbon from May Arts- a burlap (the one I used isn't currently in the catalog, but this one would be similar!) on top of 1.5" red silky/crush! Red & burlap are both in honor of Erin!

The background was created by misting a Dreamweaver Stencil.
I kept the card very literal- the circle from the sketch was created with my sewing machine.

Make sure you stop by Erin's to wish her a happy birthday & Karen's blog to see her birthday celebration for Erin!
The Ribbon Lady wanted to play along too- so be sure you stop by the May Arts blog for a special opportunity (you know how the Ribbon Lady loves a giveaway- just sayin'!)
:D
Happy Birthday, Erin!
 
And because Erin is the master of combining challenges, I'll add this one to the current Ribbon Carousel Challenge where we're to use patriotic colors! :)
