Hello, again! My second post of the day, with a card using the sketch at Seize the Birthday (http://seizethebirthday.blogspot.com/). It's also for the SU-Only Challenge to use your favorite retiring stamp set (http://suochallenges.com/).
I ended up using two retiring stamp sets, Elements of Style and Curly Cute. Elements of Style is such a classy and classic floral image, and I love the flourished fonts in Curly Cute.
I decided to use Tea for Two designer paper and carry forward the colors used in the floral images onto my stamped image. I used my Island Indigo reinker and a blender pen to color the roses, with a touch of So Saffron in the flower centers and Lucky Limeade for the stems and leaves.
Since I didn't have much room but for the small sentiment on the front of the card, the Happy Birthday sentiment was added to the interior:
Here's the STB sketch:
Well, it's time to take a break from blog posting and maybe go read a book (or make another card?). Thanks again for visiting my blog and I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.
