Create with Connie & Mary {CCMC 155}

Here's a sketch from Create with Connie & Mary that I thought I'd try out and the fact that I forgot a recent birthday allows me to use this sketch for a belated birthday card.

I pretty much followed the sketch using an older DSP - Haiku. I thought the colors in this set were so pretty and it included several borders of the larger 12 X 12 paper, which
I used on the bottom of my card in lieu of ribbon. I die cut a piece of Tangerine Tango card stock which I embossed (although it's rather difficult to see in the photo). Rather than cut the die piece in half I scored it and wrapped it around the edge of the card allowing some of the design to peek inside.

I cut a circle of whisper white cs, stamped it with a flower from Fabulous Florets using the rock and roll technique for the flower to incorporate both colors. I added a portion of the stem and matted it onto a larger circle of Old Olive cs, stamped my sentiment at the bottom, added two rhinestones and called it done!

All supplies are Stampin' Up

Love how you wrapped the top die around the card--finishes the inside perfectly! The Haiku DSP is gorgeous paired with the Fabulous Florets stamp set too! So glad you could join us at Create with Connie & Mary this week!

Nancy this card is FAB - U - Lous! I love the colors and crisp feel of the overall card. The DSP worked so wonderfully...AND I especially like how you wrapped the Top Note around the card. Genious! It was even prettier in person.

I really like how you folded the top note die to partially cover the front and the inside. Clever! And I wish we still had that DSP. Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie & Mary!

I love the sweet simplicity of your card and how you wrapped the top note around the side like that. Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
