Birthday Silhouette


So I finally made a birthday card with colors that are Lyssa worthy. She and her family are headed to the beach so this will be a nice surprise for her when she returns.

A lot of what I used on this card is new or stuff I had and never used. The gorgeous DCWV papers I bought about 2 weeks ago because they were half off at one of the local craft stores. These papers have butterfly themes. If you look closely on the green DP you can see a butterfly peeking out. The main image is from a set that I have used previously but this is the first time using this particular stamp. The leaves are from an Embosselit that I forgot I had and never used. The blue mulberry flower I purchased in a pack a couple of months ago and this is the first time using them. The Spellbinders Borderability I just got and the Dew Drops I had for a couple of years but haven't used until now. The sentiment I cut out with my new set of petite oval Nestabilities. This card fits with the Just Add Inc challenge to use stuff from your stash that has been long forgotten.

Paper: VV, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, DP-DCWV

All of your new "finds" fit so well together in this card. I saw that leaf Embosselit that other day and passed it up. I need to get back to the store! Beautiful border. What a nice surprise for your friend.

Gorgeous papers, love the way you've put this card together! Funny what we find in our stash when we go looking - cannot believe you had forgotten your Little Leaves die!

Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
