Happy Birthday Greetings

Hi there and welcome back!  Karen Giron has another fabulous sketch this week at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Before we get to much further into fall and the holiday cards take the forefront, I wanted to make another card with a flower and the sweet Pretty Petals designer paper.  I also used a piece of retired dsp from when Calypso Coral was an In Color.

I love stamping the sentiment straight on the paper, and only a Stampamajig helps me keep it straight.  Once done and both pieces of dsp adhered to the panel, it was topped with a piece of embossed Calypso Coral card stock with a wee piece of Very Vanilla peeking out that was punched with the Eyelet Border punch.  Very Vanilla Thick Twine was then wrapped and tied around it all.

The flower and leaves are from the Flower Patch stamp set and were cut out with the matching framelits.  Love all the different flowers in this set, although I tend to use this one and the "mum" (?) the most.

Thanks for dropping by and taking a look!  As always your visit and comments mean so much!  For some fabulous inspiration, be sure to use the link above to visit the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!

This is so beautiful, Stef! I love how you've stamped the sentiment directly onto the DSP, love the vanilla twine, the gorgeous DSP, and the way you've used Flower Patch. So beautifully put together, my friend.
