A Simply Soft Birthday

This is yet another set I have not played with much.  It's so sad when I look at them before I sell them and see that they were hardly used or not even used at all. I have a few of those too.  My shopping this time around will be much wiser.  Of course I'm going to be starting with all the new in colors!  The papers, inkpads, inkers, markers and decorative paper pack.  That was number one on my list.  After that it's a matter of making some wise choices. I made my wish list and I need to be careful with it and not buy everything at once like I did last year.  That was how I bought too much stuff.  I have open houses to go to and Stamp-a-Stacks so I need to spread it out!

Ok, now onto my fun card.  I used the "Simply Soft" hostess set (that you will be seeing in my web store sometime next month).  A set that was very gently used.  It's such a pretty set. I wish I would have used it more.  

I love the Melon Mambo color so I ran with it on this card.  Card stock, ink pad, and decorative papers!

I used the lace punch for part of the background.  It's confession time here.  I was going to copy a card and they had that running down the left side.  As I got working on my card I decided to turn the card and my image fit differently on the card so I added the Happy Birthday layers and made a totally different card!  I love it when I'm inspired by another card.  I think my Mojo is coming back!  

I hope you are all having a very enjoyable holiday weekend.

Thank you ever SO much for visiting today,
Wanda

I love this card Wanda.

My shopping has become much wiser as well. I was having the same troubles as you mentioned for not using what I had.
I do need to get an order to you though my SU card stock is pretty light right now;)

This is just lovely with that delicate branch of flowers! I love the border punch too!
