Today is my sister Margie's birthday.  Her favorite color is pink so you know what color my color pallette revolves around.  Here's to you Margie –  Happy Birthday!

Strawberry Slush, Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla are my color choices today.  After using the Chevron Punch and having lots of "little chevrons" left over, I wanted to find a way to use them.  As it turns out, flipping the spare pieces up so that the vee points up, I can glue them to the punched out chevron pattern.  Repeat this process for the length of the very vanilla cardstock and you will end up creating the trellis.

Every trellis deserves some beautiful flowers and this trellis is no different!  The Petite Petals stamp set and Punch created just what I needed.  The flower  image was stamped in Strawberry Slush.  The Wild Wasabi leaves are punched with the Bird Builder Punch.  The sentiment from Perfect Pennants is also stamped in Strawberry Slush Ink and then cut out with the Banner Framelits Dies.  The splatter on the front of the card was created by stamping off with the Gorgeous Grunge image inked with Strawberry Slush.

Lattice inside

The inside of the card is also stamped with the Petite Petals image.  The inside sentiment is from the set Four You.  The finishing touch was the addition of Pearl Basic Jewels to the centers of the flowers.

I am soooooo excited because my preorder goodies are due to arrive at my home today!  Mr. Brown may feel like I am stalking him!
