Created this Birthday Card using a sketch which you can see below. Had fun with giving the strips of scrap paper (try and say that a couple times) a curvy look for a festive birthday card.

Added some faux stitching with a black pen. Used 2 Cuttlebug Oriental Weave embossing folders: on the red strips and on the vellum that the buttons are on.

paper:  vellum, scraps of cardstock -red, black, white
