Simple Birthday Floral


Hi everyone! It's a new year and we are back with a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! There are no "Toppings" this week, so it's "Anything Goes" Birthday. Easy peasy, and I know you want to get a head start on making some birthday cards! 


December was a tough month for me as my DH had some pretty serious medical problems, which thankfully are on their way to being resolved. This was the first time I'd stamped in almost a month, so I gravitated toward something most in my comfort zone: florals, and my beloved Altenew stamp sets. I chose a no-fail color combo of pinks and greens, and layered up the die cut images into a simple bouquet. It felt so good to get inky again. 



With all the challenges going on in my life right now I decided to take a break from the Design Team at Stamp Ink Paper. That won't stop me from playing along as often as I can, though! This week the challenge is Card Maker's Choice. 


Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Peony Bouquet, Label Love (Altenew)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Woodgrain Card Stock (Altenew)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Velvet, Rouge, Blush (Altenew)
Tools: Big Shot, Peony Bouquet Dies (Altenew)
Accessories: Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)
