Bright Birthday

Hi everyone,


It has been a wonderful day, warm with no rain about 26 plus degrees and all the washing aired and dried.


The weather has now changed and the rain is bucketing down and the humidity is terrible!  Hopefully it will cool down during the night.


But I have had a chance to finish a bright birthday card.


I have used one of my old favourites for the base card – Pumpkin Pie with a touch of Chocolate Chip and Tempting Turquoise.


I used the Flower image from the Button Buddies stamp set and the sentiment is from the Happiest Birthdays Wishes Hostess Stamp Set.


The flowers in the vase were punched out using one of the punches from the Itty  Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.






Stamp set: Button Buddies, Happiest Birthdays Wishes

Card: Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise

Accessories: Stripes & Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Decorative Label Punch, Cutter Kit
Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack,  1/8” (3.2 mm) Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, SNAIL Adhesive



I have used the Stripes and Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folders in the Big Shot.  Just love how you can add a little texture with the Big Shot and these wonderful folders.


I have also distressed the Chocolate Chip layer with the distressing tool in the Cutter Kit and of  course I have used the Basic Rhinestones for an added ‘bling’ – another of my favourite things!
