Birthday Wishes.

Hello friends!  It's been a few days since my last post.  The garden has been calling me.  The weeds are taking over.  My brother's wedding is coming up shortly and our house will be one of the locations during the 3 day event LOL.  We want to make sure it looks as good as possible.  No pressure right? 
We also have the task of staining our back deck too but we can only do that when it is not hot.  And while I have appreciated the heat it does make it difficult to plan tasks like deck staining.  Or fence staining for the matter (I am almost done that one!).  I do plan to get back to my "flashback" posts using older sets in the next few days so pop by to see a new use for wedding day and wise owl very soon!

Today's card is a card I created some time ago and never managed to post.   I love the tranquil colours and delicate features.


Stamp set(s): sentiment from Daily Designs Sentiments, leaf image from Turning a New Leaf by PTI
Cardstock: Vintage Cream by PTI, Ocean Tides by PTI, True Black by PTI
Accents: Trinket Pin by Maya Road, Misc Polka Dot Ribbon
Tools: Copic Markers, Scallop punch by EK Success

1. Create card base.
2. Stamp image and sentiment.  Outline image with marker and draw fine lines.
3. Adhere paper strip and scalloped edge.
4.  Attach ribbon and embellishment.

Have a super day.  I'd love to hear from you!  Do you have a  FAVOURITE garden plant?  We still have more to add now and next year.

Alli, that is stunning, I wouldn't have thought to use those colours with my favourite stamp set.

Antje said...

simple and stunning! Never thought of stamping the leaves in blue,but it looks sooo nice! TFS

Alli, this is a beautiful card and those colors go wonderfully together. :) What a neat idea to stamp the leaves in a bluish ink! :)

I like that this card is unisex, even with the polkadots. Staining is not one of my fav tasks. We have to add another coat on this summer too. How exciting to be having a family event at you home though! Especially with all the hard work you have put in on your landscaping. Enjoy entertaining in the fruit of your labour!

Gorgeous! Seems to me one of your favourite colour combos. Love the pin.

My favourite garden plant is my burgundy weeping Japanese maple. So pretty...

Your card is a great choice. Because it is okay for men or women. The design and style are great. I love the polka dots ribbon. That makes that card more amazing.
