Happy Birthday

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July celebration. We had our family here for a cookout. It was a great day. We went on Saturday night to watch our local community fireworks. That was also a great night. 

Our garden harvest is just starting. Yesterday I made garlic scape pesto. The scapes are the long green shoots that grow from the garlic bulb. My husband plants his garlic in the fall. The scapes are long, curvy, and kind of look like a cross between chives and scallions. The stalk of the garlic scape also has a bud on the end; and if the scape was left on the bulb, the bud would flower. You cut the scapes to allow the garlic bulb that is in the ground to grow. 

From the scapes we had, I was able to get 3- 16oz containers of pesto. I put it in the freezer for enjoyment this winter. 

Now onto my card for today. This is one that I made for the color challenge #896 on Splitcoaststampers. I was the hostess, and I chose fresh freesia, evening evergreen and polished pink for my color trio. Optional was to use vellum. 
So for my card I used elements of the Paper Pumpkin Kit from June 2021. It has all the colors and die cuts in the chosen colors plus evening evergreen twine.

The card base did not come in the kit- it's the fresh freesia color. I used a die to cut my happy birthday sentiment. The shadow is polished pink and the phrase is cut in vellum.

The background for the die cut leaves came in the kit and it's vellum. To finish off my card, I added a few gems in polished pink. 

This card was also selected as one of the entries for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine card of the month for June. I lost in the 3rd round, but it was still nice to be selected. 

And that's it for me for this post. So until next time........ God bless.
