Brightly Colored Birthday Card

Still hoping for a little sunshine here!  The rain has not produced flooding, of that we are very thankful.  My heart goes out to those who are dealing with the floods.

While we wait for better weather, here is a bright card based on the Greenhouse Gala paper from Stampin' Up!  I'd been saving this paper for a series of scrapbook pages.  I'm nearly through the pages and have hardly touched the paper.  Sometimes things just don't end up going for what I bought them for.  Anyway, it is pretty paper and I'm sure it will find a home.

I haven't used the Big Flowers stamp set in quite awhile.  It has always been one of my favorites.  I'm using the three circular elements in place of squares in this week's card sketch from Splitcoaststampers.  I did several of these cards to start populating my next OWH box so I stretched the ribbon by cutting and stapling on the ends.

Thanks for stopping by!   

(Is there still something goofy going on with Blogger?  I can't get it to take my labels.)

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Alpahbet Soup and Big Flowers from Stampin' Up!
DSP:  Greenhouse Gala
Cardstock:  Lemon Tart from PTI
Ink:  Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze
Ribbon:  Making Memories


  1. What a bright & fun birthday card, LIsa! I love what you did with the sketch. The trio of flowers look great.

  2. Love your colorful card and those stamps! Will have to find them in my SU! catalog......
