Because a stamp a day keeps the doctor away... or something...

This card is for one of my daughter's friends -- she's a little bit girly, a little bit preppy and she loves pink. I didn't want anything too distressed for this particular project, so I chose papers from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie collection. The base is "Milk"; a really pretty, lightly distressed white. The floral layer is "Bountiful" - I rounded two of the corners, and sort of underlined it with a stitched rub on from Heidi Grace's "Borders" collection. The grid patterned circle was taken from the center of a sheet of "Monarch". One of the things I like about this particular paper is that there are so many different elements to cut out and use separately, or you could use the whole sheet for a scrapbook page. I then punched 3/4" circles from the pink solid in this paper collection, "Morning Glory" and arranged them around the gridded circle to make petals. I popped this layer up using some Stampin' Up! Dimensionals. "Happy" was added with white chip board Thickers from the Gift Box collection. I hand wrote "birthday" underneath. As a final touch, I rounded the upper right and lower left corners of the card with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. I got this tool for my birthday. Although it's a bit large and heavy, I do like it.
Hope you enjoy today's creation! If you do, please be sure to leave me some love!
