This week for the MMSC, I decided to create a card using one of my favorite color combos. I really liked to look of this card, except next time I will emboss the happy birthday with a white embossing powder to give it a little pop. I embossed my back layers with the Backgrounds 1 textuz plates and the flowers where punches from the Trio Flower Punch.
Thanks for looking!
Card Stock: Whisper White, Old Olive, Lovely Lilac and Elegant Eggplant
Stamp Sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes and Thoughts & Prayers
Ink: Old Olive and Whisper White
Other: Backgrounds 1 textuz plates, Trio Flower Punch, 1/16" Circle Punch and the Eyelet Border Punch.

Hi Cher: Thought I would stop by your blog this morning as you left a comment on mine and I wished to return the favor. Once I saw your picture, I recognized you from SCS!!! It's like seeing a friend and I got excited!!! lol Your card with the violets is so precious. What a pretty color combination too! It looks wonderful and you did a terrific job. See you soon during the challenges at SCS.
