Happy birthday to my dear friend Mary Linn! My card today is done in blues because that is her favorite color. Sure hope she likes it!
This colorful & busy paper is from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack. The flowers on it reminded me of the flowers from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set & Framelits. Naturally I had to stamp a trio of those flowers in Pacific Point Ink & cut them out with the framelits to make a small bouquet alongside my sentiment. The leaves are also found in the set .
Using Old Olive Cardstock & the Swirly Bird Framelits, I cut a trio of leaves to go with my bouquet. The sentiment from Watercolor Wishes is stamped at an angle on a strip of Whisper White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
Look closely and you will spot the sprinkling of small Pearls that form the flowers centers & dot the i's of a few words on the sentiment. A trio of large Pearls help to ground my card.
I am finding the Swirly Bird bundle to be so useful. Guess you already know that based on the number of posts that I have created with the bundle. Although the paper is retiring, the bundle will be available in the new 2016 – 2017 Annual Catalog.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
