PP 62 Challenge - Gently Falling Birthday

Hi Everyone and I hope that you are enjoying your day.  This is my second post for the week...maybe too much time on my hands. lol   I have been busy down in my stamping quarters and now it's time to clean up...procrastinating?   

As I was getting ready to post the card for the challenge, I realized the card used the Gently Falling stamp set and the Spice Cake DSP.  This set has become a favourite because I just love the colours used in the designer papers.  I promise to have a new stamp set for you on my next post.

The challenge for the week from the Paper Players is to create a birthday card to build up your stash.  Who can't use another birthday card.



Stamps: Gently Falling (c – 123804, $35.95, w – 123802, $48.95, p. 16 2011-2012 Holiday Mini), Happiest Birthday Wishes (c- 122617 $18.00 Hostess $, w – 122615 $26.00 Hostess $, p. 10 2011-2012 IB&C),
Paper: Ivory Naturals, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz, Spice Cake DSP
Ink: Soft Suede
Accessories: Big Shot, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Spice Cake Fabric, Oval Punch, Round Tab Punch, Early Espresso Ribbon, Markers: More Mustard, Pool Party, Pear Pizzaz, Early Espresso, Spritzer Tool, Spice Cake Designer Button

I incorporated one of the Spice Cake designer buttons as a focal point and added the Early Espresso ribbon to make it appear attached to the fabric. I also used the spritzer tool to add just a bit more pizzaz.
