Today's project was inspired by the Ways to Use It challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. We were challenged to create in a monotone using any shade(s) of green, with a neutral okay as well. Since 5 of our In-Colors will be retiring in June, I opted to use Pistachio Pudding from that group. You might have noticed that I haven't used a lot of Pistachio Pudding in previously shared ideas ... so it was a bit like my own little 'self-challenge'. And I'm actually glad that I did!
It's just right for times when "subtle" is the best choice! We all know those special people who would probably love the softly-colored approach. I started with the Circle Card thinlits, Pistachio Pudding cardstock, and Confetti Celebration designer series 12"x12" paper.
Once I had chosen the central image idea, I knew I wanted the Flower Patch stamps and coordinating Flower Fair Framelits. When the card is flipped open, there's the Happy Bloomin' Birthday greeting! The Decorative Label punch was perfect for adding shape to the Soft Suede inked greeting and it's shadow piece in Crumb Cake.
Okay m'friends! Here's to plentiful hot cocoa, hot cider, hot tea, hot coffee ... whatever your pleasure! May the warmth be with you!
