Tie Dye Birthday Card

This card is based on the photo inspiration/color challenge at The Play Date Café.    I took my inspiration from the colors and two of the photos shown.  Here is the original inspiration photo-

I used the Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon from Close To My Heart to bring all of the colors together.

The seam binding ribbon is my go to embellishment.   This ribbon takes color so well.  The ribbon here was sponged with color from my ink pads.  You can also color with markers, reinkers, sprays etc.  The vase and flowers were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.
