The Blue Ribbon Stamp Set from the new 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog is one of my absolute new favorites!  It is such a fun set and perfect for creating masculine cards as well as kids cards and with a little creativity can easily create a fun, feminine card as well.  For this weeks Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge, I really felt the Blue Ribbon stamp set was the perfect match.

Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge #43

Blue Ribbon Happy Birthday




Blue Ribbon Happy Birthday




I started the base of the card with More Mustard Card Stock then layered Cherry Cobbler Card Stock which was cut using the Large Scallop Edgelits then embossed using the Delicate Designs Folder.  Next, a layer of World Spectacular Designer Series Paper was placed on the card with the Denim Ribbon.  The Blue Ribbon stamped image is stamped with Midnight Muse then the scallop circle is punched out using the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle and then I cut out the "ribbon" portion of the stamp set and attached it to the punched scallop circle image.  The 3 More Mustard brads were added embellishments to finish the design details of the card along with "dad" stamped on the Cherry Cobbler just above the Denim Ribbon.
