Stipple Blossom Birthday

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I am out in San Francisco visiting with my son, daughter-in-law and of course my precious Phoenix Daisy.  I have been here for 3 days and just enjoying this little 2 year old immensely.

She does wear me out though with her boundless energy. I am only here for a couple of more days  and then I head back to Pittsburgh. I left my hubby behind on this trip to take care of things on the home front.

I partially set up the post before I left by uploading my photo only. Knowing that I would finish them here when I had a chance. Well my son took my daughter-in-law on a date tonight and I am babysitting Phoenix. She is fast asleep right now.

The card I am showing today was made for the virtual stamp night challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Marilyn was our hostess and she wanted us to use flowers on our cards and also something new. Get details here. 

I used a brand new (to me) stamp set from Stampin-Up - "stippled blossoms".  The flowers are stamped in pale plum and rich razzleberry inks. My leaves are stamped in celery and gumball green inks. I fussy cut them and popped up on dimensionals.

I embossed the background very vanilla layer with the Stampin-Up tulips embossing folder. The happy birthday sentiment is from the Stampin-Up set "party this way".  Added a bow made with very vanilla ribbon and a rich razzleberry button to complete my card.

My card inspiration came from my design team sister, Karen Barber. She posted this card for the color challenge 402.

Well, that's it for me for now. So until next time.........God bless.
