Happy Birthday

We made it through Monday!

I made this card with the new set I got at Stamp-A-Faire that will release in August called Simple Sunflower. I love it!


I impressed the background with the Linen/Canvas Impression plate. The sentiment (from Enjoy the Ride) was heat-embossed with clear detail ep. The ink colors used on the flowers are Summer Sunrise, Rich Cocoa (Memento), and Ripe Avocado.


This birthday card will be on its way to a friend who loves sunflowers...and speaking of birthdays, my baby girl is 4 tomorrow. Holy cow, that flew by!

Have a great day!

That's a stunning card, Melissa. I love the sunflowers. I think the linen/canvas IP has just moved to the "must buy" list for my next order.

So, so beautiful. I'm sure your friend will love it. I look forward to the sunflower stamp set!!! I've loved everything I've seen of it. And I really like the linen IP, too.

Love it! The impression plate adds the perfect texture for the sunflower design. The little scallops peeking out from behind the brown panel add a fun touch. Great job!!
