French Foliage Birthday

Happy Tuesday!  Hope you're having a fabulous day.

For today's card, I turned to the latest Inkspirational challenge:

I really liked the colors, which I read as Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight.  And then I just really wanted to see how those colors would look with some French Foliage:

We've got lots of fall birthdays in our family so I'm sure this will get sent off in a few months.  The leaves are all rock 'n' rolled--even the Razzleberry ones are stamped off once, then rolled in more Razzleberry ink to make them darker on the edges.  Then I sponged the image panel a bit on the edges because that seems to be de rigueur for this stamp set (oooh, I threw in some French on this French Foliage card!).  I kinda wished I'd embossed the sentiment in Early Espresso EP to make it stand out a little better, but oh well.  The card is based on an old SCS sketch;  I ended up liking it more than I thought I would.

Thanks for stopping by today!
