Pretty Coneflower Birthday – PP562 Color Challenge

Honey Bee Coneflower Brithday Card -Rosanne Mulhern

Happy Friday!  I’m sharing a birthday card using Honey Bee’s Coneflower dies.  Again, I’ve had these dies for a few months and now I’m wondering why it took me so long to create with them.  They are awesome!

My card colors are inspired by this week’s color challenge at the The Paper Players…

After cutting the components of the coneflowers from Pale Papaya card stock, I sponged them with Pumpkin Pie ink for some added dimension.  The flower centers were cut from Early Espresso card stock.  The leaves are cut from Garden Green card stock and sponged with the same ink.

The sentiment is stamped from Stampin’ Up!’s Best Year stamp set.  I cropped and layered it using the SU Laying Ovals (retired) dies.  The plaid patterned background is from the DCWV Falling Leaves 6 x 6 stack.

The inside sentiment is also from the Best Year stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an enjoyable weekend.  

Take care.
