Happy World Card Making Day!

In honor of World Card Making Day, I present to you this card:

After not stamping for 6 days, it was hard to get the creative juices flowing again, so I did what I always do when that happens: I opened up the 07 Fall/Winter Collection and found a card I like and went from there. This card is an adaptation of the one on page 155. I've always loved the color combo and clean lines of the card! Plus, one of my friends has a birthday this week (happy birthday Jimmi!), and I'll be sending this to her.
I cut a piece of groovy guava cardstock to 6 x 6 and folded it in half. I then rounded the two right-side corners. The celery piece is 2 x 6 with a 1/4" strip of soft sky layered on it. I stamped a row of flowers (All In a Row) in celery and tied celery knot of ribbon around the top. I adhered the celery piece to the guava card and cut the corner to match. I stamped the dots (In the Spotlight) in white craft ink and the sentiment (It's Your Birthday) in guava ink. The flower (In the Spotlight) is stamped in guava ink and punched out with the 5-petal flower punch. I layered it on a circle of celery (1-1/4" circle punch) and sky (1-3/8" circle punch), and attached a clear rhinestone brad (Pretties kit) in the middle. The flower piece is attached with a dimensional.

I really like it. That card jumped out of me too when I browsed the catalog for the first time. Wonderful case!
Have a great weekend. Hugs and smiles
