Birthday Wishes for Melissa


My stamping/workout buddy Melissa celebrated a birthday last Saturday. This is the card I sent her.

I used some retired, but lovely SU sets. The main image is from Easy Elegance, with a background stamped with French Script. I stamped it on Confetti White and matted it with black and Lovely Lilac. I used my Spica clear glitter pen on the flower.

A spiral clip from Target, a rhinestone for the center of the flower, a thin strip of black card stock, and a bit of organdy ribbon finish the card.
Happy Birthday Melissa!

Stamps: Easy Elegance, Amazing to Zany, French Script, Rough Around the Edges Wheel.
Ink: Always Artichoke, Lovely Lilac, Mellow Moss, Basic Black
Paper: Confetti White, Basic Black, Lovely Lilac, Mellow Moss
Extras: Spiral clip from Target, White Organdy Ribbon, Spica Clear Glitter Pen, clear rhinestone

This card is beautiful! It is so soft and elegant. I have missed seeing your wonderful creations. Hopefully things will start to slow done for you and you'll be able to post them more often. Have a great weekend!

The elegant simplicity of this design is so very attractive Paula. This is a reminder that I need more often than not - every project doesn't have to be stacked with layers and embellishments and embossing, etc. to be beautiful! Why do I try to go against my style grain?! :)

Love & friendship, Jules
