Isn't that a good one?! I could see so many possibilities with this from heavily layered to clean and detailed....I landed somewhere in the middle with today's card:
A colleague at work hits a milestone birthday next week so I wanted to make an extra special card for her. She loves flowers so I loaded her up with as many as I could fit on this card! I wanted to keep the focus on the center panel and chose to stamp a panel of mock paper on the bottom layer. For this I used my favorite Birthday Blooms set in a tone-on-tone pattern on the Pool Party base. Next, is a striped layer from some retired paper--Blushing Bride is such a pretty pair to Pool Party isn't it?
The Number of Years stamp set and coordinating Large Numbers Framelits makes for a fun way to highlight more of this pretty retired DSP by using the negative space left behind from the die-cut. Once I cut out the numbers, I stamped through the shape with the number in Blushing Bride ink. What you can't see in the photo is that I brushed Wink of Stella onto the numbers for some pretty sparkle! The Pool Party ruffled ribbon is long since retired but like some many things in my craft room likes to come out and play. Here it served as a nice base for the Mossy Meadow "amazing" Celebrate You thinlit from the current Sale-a-Bration catalog.
The Number of Years stamp set has a bunch of great sentiments like the one I used here on the inside. I mean who wouldn't feel better about their 50th birthday after a sentiment like this one, right?!
I hope you enjoyed my card today....be sure to check out my teammates at The Paper Players for even more fabulous inspiration. We hope you will play along with us before the challenge closes on Friday, March 2nd at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by, friends!
