Wonderful Birthday Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you a sweet card to celebrate a friends birthday, and what better way than to send a “Basket of Wishes”. This is the stamp set that creates the focal point of your card.

Let’s begin with the “Pretty Paisley” textured embossing folder … this is your first step in creating this card. I love the way the oval encompasses the greeting and our dragonfly, then brings your eye right to your focal point … the basket of flowers.

The basket and flowers were simply colored with multiple markers … you could watercolor with the Aqua Painters is you wanted a more subtle look.

Our cute little dragonfly comes from the “Touches of Texture” stamp set found on page 141 of the Annual catalog. There are no rules that say you can’t mix and match stamp sets, in fact, Stampin’ Up! designs many of their sets to coordinate and flow with each other … Love it!

Just a quick post today to get you back to your weekend, but I appreciate that you stopped in to check out my blog. Thank you.

Have yourself a wonderful day ~
