Simple Birthday Wishes

I had cut out this scalloped circle for Wednesday's card, but decided that it was just the wrong color. So, instead of adding it to my card parts, I just decided to use it. I used the same sentiment (from Impression Obsession), but stamped it in the middle and added a punched flower with an enamel dot center. I mounted the sentiment panel on foam squares. The left side is textured cardstock embossed with a Cuttlebug folder (Anna Griffin Matelasse) which I sanded down to let the white show through.

I haven't had much stamping time lately. Sure hope I will again soon! I have sorted out all of my "card parts" though and have everything in cellophane envelopes in ONE fairly small box! That feels SO good:)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

The scallop circle is perfect. And I love the embossed background (giggle!). I think I'm the one who enabled you for that one!

Love this look of this card and I too have that embossing folder. I am inspired to put it to more use thanks to you.

Neat clean and simple card. Red and white is always good!

Oooh, pretty! I love crisp red and white cards. The embossing looks fabulous with the sanding, just the right touch on that and such a pretty folder. Love the tiny flower with the enamel dot center, too. Way to go with the sorting and organizing! I enjoy that almost as much as stamping and hope to make some time for it soon. Keep trying to get ahead, but something always comes up.
