Today in blog land, many of us are celebrating the 50th birthday of Maria of rieslingmama. I’ve admired the cards she’s made that were published in Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking (formerly Paper Crafts Magazine) and I couldn’t have been any more pleased when she expressed interest in becoming part of my design team at STAMPlorations! I’m always in awe of her projects and I love reading her posts. So Maria, here’s to you on your 50th birthday! This virtual birthday party is being hosted by Shirley, another wonderful STAMPlorations girl :o) Hop over to Shirley’s blog to see birthday cards made by some awesome card-makers who are partying in Maria’s honor as well!
For this card, I used stamps from
Inkadinkado Cloud 9 (big flower, circles, and ribbed leaf) and STAMPlorations (small flowers and solid leaf, birthday sentiment). I used Memento inks: cantaloupe, pear tart, rose bud, bahama blue, and tuxedo black. I used the current sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch #69 and I was inspired by the flowers in the photo inspiration over at The Card Concept Challenge #6 to create this clean and simple one layer card. And then there’s Seize the Birthday, where it’s anything goes (as long as it’s a birthday card, of course!).
Thanks for stopping by!
