Happy Birthday

A quickie card today giving a sneak peek at a stamp set being released next month by Skipping Stones DesignSSD. This set is called Pumpkin Seed Sentiments, and is inspired by the quilting pattern (and where it gets its namesake) Pumpkin Seeds. This set combines three backgrounds and some great text sentiments that is sure to work for both masculine and feminine cards! Can't wait until the release next month!


I used the colors from The Color Dare challenge this week for Poppy Parade (substituted Real Red), So Saffron and Very Vanilla.



The Saffron base was dry embossed with an impression plate and my Big Shot. The background stamp is accentuated with the ribbon, sentiment and punched out butterflies (MS punch). A bright and cheery little birthday card!

Supplies
CS:
So Saffron, Real Red, Very Vanilla
Ink: So Saffron, Real Red
Stamps: Pumpkin Seed Sentiments (released in February)
Misc: Impression plate, Real Red grosgrain ribbon, MS royal butterfly punch
