Happiest of Birthdays

Well today we are digging out of 2 feet of snow thanks to Jonas!  But at least it is bright and sunny…really bright with all the white stuff on the ground.  I look at it like we are one less snowstorm until Spring!

Today I am entering in two challenges.  A sketch challenge for Mojo Monday and a theme challenge for StampInkPaper.

I chose to make a soft feminine birthday card mostly because I simply love the DSP from the Love Blossoms Paper Stack and thought that this particular pattern was so pretty.

The beautiful flower, I think it is a cabbage rose, from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set in the Occasions Catalog takes center stage on this card.  I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then colored it in using Blushing Bride, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz ink and my blender pen.  I also heat embossed the sentiment which is also from this set.

Here is a close up of the flower

The inside sentiment is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set in the Annual Catalog.  I think the font coordinates very nicely with the sentiment on the front of the card even though they are from two different sets.

And to pull the whole card together, I just embellished the flap of the envelope with DSP.  I just decorate the flaps when using designer series paper that I particularly love for two reasons.  First, it can be seen from the outside and before the envelope is torn open and secondly, because I am usually trying to hoard the paper and get a little stingy with it because I don’t want to use it all up.

Thanks very much for taking a peek at my project today.  I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
