Dianne's Doodle This Birthday

Shhhhh.....don't tell my friend Diane, but I created this card for her birthday, which is coming up on Sept. 11. The floral print paper and coordinating brad are from the blog candy I won from Gina K awhile back....I just love it!

I don't know Diane really well yet, but we went shopping together a few times and I found that she really likes Cool Carribbean blue ~ unfortunately, I don't have that color, but I thought the blue in the Gina K paper looked a lot like it.

The flower was created by stamping the Doodle This stamp onto Gina's paper with Versa Mark ink, then embossing with white embossing powder and cutting out. I rolled the edges gently around one of my markers to create the 'popped' look of the flower.

Sentiment is from 3 different sets ~ a TAC set called "It's the Little Things", a Stampin Up set called "Make it Count" and a set of sentiment/greeting stamps that I purchased a couple of years ago from the dollar store in Strathroy, ON. Cardstock is Bliss Blue, Bravo Burgundy and Sage Shadow. Ink is Bravo Burgundy.
