Happy Birthday

I made my card for a sweet lady at church using JUGS Challenge #339 - use lavender, peach and ivory.  
I had to do some thinking on these colors and tried several things before decided on this finished card.  I CASEd myself with a card I made here.   I used SU Very Vanilla CS for the card base and the 2 main panels.  The first panel is embossed with SU Filigree Frame EF.  The next panel is cut with Creative Expressions Californian Collection-Beverly Hills die by Sue Wilson.  I stamped Verve's Happy Birthday Plain Jane in black ink.  The flowers from SU Petite Petals are stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe (I tried Peach Parfait, but it looked yellow) and Wisteria Wonder inks.  I punched them out with the matching punch and sponged the edges of the petals and added ivory pearls to the centers.  The leaves from SU Peaceful Petals is stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Sahara Sand CS.  After fussy cutting them out, I sponged them with Crumb Cake ink.  Both vanilla panels are mounted with foam tape for dimension.

Since this is a girlie card, I also am entering in this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Happy Stamping,


  1. I love this one as much as the previous one! Still loving that lacy die and the peach and lavender flowers are so pretty!

  2. This is so lovely. I really like all the white, and the texture on the background, and then the pop of colors with the flowers. Really, really pretty. Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Just Us Girls. Good luck!!

  3. Elegant and it.

  4. Makes me smile when I see your lovely cards in our gallery over at Just Us Girls. I have a card in my studio that you made for me using this die...I love this one as much as that one! Hugs to you!
