In the Style of Brian King

If you check out the sidebar to the right, you can see I've got quite a list of blogs that I like to visit for some stampy inspiration, and today's card is inspired by Brian King.  I'm not necessarily thinking of any particular card of his, but when I was making this it just seemed to jive with all the goodies I've seen on his blog :)

There's a springy birthday card for ya.  The flower is from the new-this-month get-it-while-you-can Nature's Perfection, which I embossed in Calypso Coral EP on Blushing Bride cardstock.  The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics, which I got in the bundle with the Butterfly Thinlits but hadn't used before now because I'm distracted by the Butterfly Thinlits.

Anywha, I got my springariffic color combination from Fab Friday:

I continue to be in love with the Spring Flowers embossing folder.  Add the hexagon punch to flag the end of my sentiment banner, and that's the whole card right there.

And that's all the news that's fit to print.  Cheers, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Nature's Perfection, Butterfly Basics
Ink:  Versamark, Calypso Coral

Hey, I looked at this yesterday and didn't comment. I don't think I'm a fan of the gold with the pinks, but that's just me. The gold looks great with greens and stuff, but just not a fan of it here. Otherwise, I like your card and think it would look frantastic in another combo, but you know me -- I gravitate towards the same things all the time, same colors, same styles, etc. I guess I feel comfortable with it and just stick with it. Love you!
