Happy Blooming Birthday!
Do you sometimes find inspiration for a project from unexpected places? I do and it happened for this card! I had just returned from my sister’s house and was putting away some crafting things while thinking about a card I wanted to make. My only dilemma was on the color scheme and as I reached to put away a “Thirty-One” bag, inspiration hit! It was from this bag that I chose my project colors:
My inspirational process…
My friend, Penny S., had recently commented that we hadn’t used her favorite stamp set in class for a while. She was right, so I knew that I wanted to use Flower Patch and it’s coordinating framelits, Flower Fair. I remembered that my downline and team member, Marie Green, had made a beautiful card with this set, so I refreshed my memory with her blog post found here and this Happy Blooming Birthday card is what happened. I shamelessly CASEd her layout (Copy And Share Everything)!
Satisfaction is a great feeling!
I was very happy with the results which made me fall in love all over again with this fabulous set! I’m so glad that Penny prompted me to use it again!
The colors I used were Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Tip Top Taupe and Early Espresso. Silver sequins and thread add a little bling, which every project can benefit from while the espresso background is embossed with large polka dots.
I hope you stamp today! See you next time.
