Summer Birthday Card


Fruits-of-Summer-2

I love playing along in the PTI Blog Hops.  I used all PTI stamps & the second color scheme.  I wanted to make a rose similar to Chicago Peace & it's not too far off. My stamp sets are The Sweet Life, Background Basics: Text Style & Quilled Elegance.  Unfortunately, I inked the edges of the Mat Stack 3 die cut with Vintage Cream & it would have been better just edged with the brown ink.  All in all, I like the card & it gave me a chance to use this wonderful brown grograin ribbon.  I'm also entering the Birthday challenge at A Passion for Papertrey & Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  Thanks for stopping by.  I'm off to work, but will check out blogs when I get home.
Edited to add: I'm adding this card to the challenge at Seize the Birthday.
