Happy Birthday, Ann!

A co-worker of mine is celebrating her birthday this week, and in perusing the catalog, the pic on pg. 79 caught my eye and just screamed, “Ann would love this!”  So I whipped out my new paper trimmer, my big shot and my stamps and CASE’D this card.  Here is my version:

Happy Birthday AnnMy lighting is a little wonky and it seems a little washed out on the right side but I hope you can see it well enough.

I used Sahara Sand cardstock for my base, and topped it with Early Espresso Cardstock.  A piece of DSP in Baja Breeze from the Floral District Designer Series Paper pack # 126919 filled in the center.  I ran a little piece of Sahara Sand thru my Big Shot with the Finishing Touches Edgelits # 127010 to create the beautiful lacy border.  The Labels Collections Framelits # 125598 created the beautiful die-cut shape for my main attraction.  Everything Eleanor provided the stamps for the flowers and Perfectly Penned provided the sentiment.  Basic Pearls make great flower centers so after I snipped out my little flower stamped in Calypso Coral, I added a pearl. My leaves were also snipped and are tucked underneath the die cut.  Baja Breeze seam binding #122331 tied in a double bow is the finishing touch.

I just love the soft shade of Baja Blue and the contrast of Early Espresso. Calypso Coral and the Old Olive provided just the right accent colors for this color palette.  The way the seam binding ribbon just flows is lovely.  Everything about this card is feminine and reminds me of Ann.  Happy Birthday, Ann!
