Floral Birthday Wishes

Much as I love fall (and I really, really do), a stamper cannot live on leaves alone.  So today we're mixing it up a bit with some flowers.


I used the Flower Fair Framelits to cut out some Pink Pirouette blossoms, and then stamped on them with Strawberry Slush ink and added a Night of Navy Candy Dot in the flower center for good measure.  I even decorated the inside:


No Candy Dot there though, I didn't want the texture to warp the card front when it gets mailed.

I used the beautiful color palette provided by the Color Throwdown:


Nice to have a little break from all the fall and Christmas color combinations lately, and that hat is super-duper cute.  I don't even wear hats and I kinda want one.  A friend of mine was crocheting a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hat yesterday (it has the face mask with eye holes!!!) and I kinda wanted one of those too, but the hubs would definitely pretend he didn't know me when we were out in public if I wore one of those.

Anyway, I also used the Pals Paper Arts sketch:


Just a little bit tweaked on my card.  I think you can still see all the elements of the sketch, though.

That's it for me tonight, peeps.  The hubs and I are going to catch up on Agents of SHIELD!

Doesn't the upcoming series about the woman from "Captain America" look great? She is such a gorgeous actress. I am really looking forward to that one.

Your card is BEAUTIFUL. I love EVERYTHING about it. I like navy blue. Cute, cute cap, too. I'd love to have that crochet pattern.

Have a great Friday!!! I'll only work 2 days next week. Woo Hoo!
