Honeycomb Birthday

I don't often post cards that use retired products.  However, today I was making a birthday card for one of my niece's and wanted to use pink and purple.  After-all, they are her favorite colors.

I didn't have any current designer series paper that met the qualifications for those colors, but I did have some retired paper.  The Honeycomb TIEF was used for the Whisper White, and it was from another project.  Because the designer series paper had some Lovely Lilac (a retired Stampin' Up! color), I pulled out one of the sheets that I still have of that color to coordinate.  The ribbon is a piece of Pretty In Pink satin ribbon (also retired).

I did use the new Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate on the edge of the card, and I'll admit that I'm liking it more the more I use it.  There's definitely a learning curve!  The message is Sassy Salutations and it's not very noticeable, but there's a Rhinestone Basic Jewel over the "I" in Birthday.

I'm pleased, and am pretty sure that my little "princess" niece will be too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Pretty card! Did you cut out each piece to fit in the honeycomb? I bet your niece loved it! : )

Thanks, Boni. The honeycomb wasn't hard. Mary showed how to run the DSP through the TIEF on the Big-Shot using an extra shim, and the paper pulls apart along the hexagons easily. I trimmed on the edges because that's more my style. But pretty easy.
