Mixed Bunch birthday card

Hello Stampers!  I recently had a workshop for Anne, Teresa, and Lauren.  It was such a hoot!  There was tons of food and I think a good time was had by all!  We made three cards, one of which is shown below.  I found a similar card online and I loved it!    I loved the colors and the layering of the flowers.

IMG_2108 The colors on this card are Marina Mist and Soft Suede.  This card uses the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder for the background.  It's so beautiful!  Remember that you can use these embossing folders in both the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and the Texture Boutique!

The flower sets that we used were Mixed Bunch and Petite Petals.  And don't you love it that both stamp sets have coordinating punches?

When you book a party with me, you get to pick the projects that we make!  I have a few dates left this year for making all occasions or holiday cards.  I will soon be booking for Sale-a-Bration parties!  Contact me to let me know you are interested and I will let you know when I start booking!
