Birthday Wishes

This is kind of a weird color combination for me. Do you ever seem to use the same colors all the time? Maybe it's because of Christmas and Valentine's Day that I keep going back to RED a lot.

The card stock, ink and ribbon are PTI Summer Sunrise and Ocean Tides, the White is my standard Neenah Super Smooth Solar White. I used Verve's Thankful Accents and Circular Sayings sets, birthday cards are something I try to keep a good stash of.

I made the patterned paper from the stamps in the set. I penciled a 1 1/4 inch square grid on the white card stock so I could stamp the flower image in straight (almost!) rows, then I stamped the hearts to fill in the bare spots. This is also a Mojo Monday sketch from July 2009.

I really like this card! It does seem a little outside the box for you... and it works! Great job!
