Birthday Celebrations...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

The holidays seriously depleted my store of occasion cards (which was a good thing because they made wonderful gifts that many people appreciated!) So, I'm using this week's terrifically simple sketch from the Pals Paper Arts team to restock.
For this birthday card, I pulled out some old beloved favorites: Bleu Bayou and Baja Breeze. I still love the Upsy Daisy stamp set and used it here by stamping in Whisper White Craft directly onto my designer paper and embossing with powder. I decided to keep things very clean and simple, only adding a few brads and two easy lines from my Signo Gel Pen. This card took less than 15 minutes. Eazy-peezy, just the way I like it!

Your card is, as usual, wonderful! I love the colors and that Upsy Daisy stamp. (I've wanted that stamp for a long time now, but don't feel I can do it justice.) The DSP you chose is to die for. Terrific take on the sketch, too!

So pretty! I have always LOVED that stamp and I like how you limited the colors to make it really stand out! FAB card!
