Happy Birthday Wishes- Three in One (well almost:-))

Hi Stampers! 

This has been a busy week again, but I wanted to take a moment to relax in my craft room and create a card.  I decided to use what I thought were the Just Add Ink JAI154 Colors (accidentally used Summer Starfruit versus So Saffron, I hope this will be OK:-)) along with the FMS73 Freshly Made Sketch and the theme of Birthday from Shop Our Stash Challenge #89 ( a new challenge blog for me).

Again, I hope you will take the time to visit each site and check out their great Design Team projects as well as all of other Challenge entries- so much inspiration- just love our craft!!

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock.  Using the Adorning Accents Edgelit™ cut the edge of the embossed Midnight Muse and a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Emboss the edge of the Whisper White with the matching Adorning Accents Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. 

Ink the Sunflower background stamp with Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp onto Summer Starfruit cardstock.  Carefully cut out the Sunflower image and adhere to a piece of Whisper White cardstock that has been stamped with the En Francais background stamp using Midnight Muse Classic Ink. 

Stamp a piece of Summer Starfruit with the En Francais stamp as well for the bottom portion of the card.

Stamp the Birthday Medallion from the retired set, Happiest Birthday Wishes and punch out with the 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punch.  Add with SU! Dimensions , add the Summer Starfruit banner (crimped with The Paper Crimper), triple satin stitched bow and pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Sunflower (background), En Francais (background), Happiest Birthday Wishes (retired)

Cardstock: Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White

Ink:  Midnight Muse

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Adorning Accents and Finial Press (retired) Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Adorning Accents Edgelits™ Die, 1 ¾” Scallop Punch, 1” Square Punch (for banner), Crimper Tool, Pearls, 3/8" Midnight Muse Satin Stitched Ribbon

Thanks again for stopping by- have a great weekend!

Wow - the sunflower is a very dramatic stamped image. Great card, Julie (in spite of the little hiccup with the colours!). Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week.
