1/14 Herbal Birthday

I started this card on Friday while I still had my Orchid Opulence laying out on my desk. I really don't mind this color! lol! Sharon Johnson mentioned that she liked it paired with an old color called Mint Medley that SU used to have. I decided to try it with Gable Green.

I found some designer paper in my stash of non SU papers and I decided to take my cues from there. That is why you see the swirly from Baroque Motifs carried up into the main image panel. ( I really LOVE Baroque Motifs!)

I wanted to create a few birthday cards so off to my Image Book I went a looking. I decided to use Sweet Herbs - a long retired SU set, but still one of my favorites. The sentiment is also from a retired SU set called Simple Sayings II.

Have you noticed how the designer paper sort of pops just a bit? I used a ruler and my fine-tip black marker to pop that edge just a bit. This is a flat card - not even foam tape! Perfect for mailing away! Have a great day!

Supplies I used on this card:

Stamps: Sweet Herbs, Simple Sayings II, Baroque Motifs Paper: Orchid Opulence, Basic Gray, Whisper White, non-SU designer paper Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Going Gray, Orchid Opulence, Gable Green Accessories: Ruler, Fine-Tip Black Marker, Aqua-Painter
