Simple Happy Birthday


It's a stretch for me, but I like the simplicity 2-step or solid images lend to card-making but my desire will be for line art images 9 times out of 10. I really like Stampin' Up!'s new Wow Flowers set (which will be available to purchase beginning next Tuesday, yea!) I love that it comes with 2 greetings in the set, Thank You & Happy Birthday - sure makes the set more versatile. I used it here with 2 of the New In Colors - Pink Pirouette & Riding Hood Red - love them paired with Chocolate Chip! This is the first time I made a flower out of the scallop punch by cutting slits between the scallops. How fun! Now that I look at this card again, I could have made the bottom of it stand out more by placing a pink/red scallop border at the bottom of the front of the card or perhaps rounding the corners.

This looks fantastic to me! I like simple too, but when I do them I feel like my cards are nakkid, rofl.

I love the simplicity of this card. Thanks for reminding me about making the scallop a flower. I learned that at the Arlington swap.

I noticed you had a new pic and stopped by to say it looks nice. It has been a while and I forgot if this is old or new, but I love your background image.

btw, the card is lovely. I am guessing you like coloring in the images yourself.
