Soft shades of pinks mixed with the natural coloring of light browns ... I admit, it's a favorite of mine. In the garden and in my craft room. These patterned papers are thrown together from my scrap drawer - some from the Lap of Luxury collection, another from Newsprint Designer, the rest from "here and there". I always enjoy the first step of creating ... pulling out all my goodies in the desired shades of color. Putting this color with that color ... or maybe that pattern with this pattern ... having it all tossed about in front of me to play with - pure bliss. The ribbon is seam binding dyed with Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink ... it's delicious and I love the mottled look. A sweet pink button from Designer Buttons - Subtles with a delicate little pearl tops off my bow.
The gorgeous globe stamp is part of the The Open Sea set and the sentiment (a wonderful font) is from Happy Greetings. A pretty pink velvet leaf and handmade flower adds a soft texture and a touch of shimmer. Yes, I've restocked my ETSY store with more blooms (I knew you'd ask).
Happy Birthday Cheryl ... thank you for all the inspiration you have given me and for all you do!
