Simply Soft Birthday Card

This is going to be a short post.  Not because I'm in a hurry, it's just that this was such a simple and quick card and there really isn't a whole lot to say about it!  So I will say all I can!!

The set used here is the "Simply Soft" hostess set in the new catalog.  I am just SO into flowers right now.  Not that ours are really blooming here.  We are back in the 60's temperature wise and the cool weather doesn't help things to grow here.  But I saw that 80's are on the way here (UGH!!! - personally I HATE summer with the heat, humidity and tornadoes).  

I stamped the images using black StazOn and colored them in with markers and a blender pen.  The "happy birthday" is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  One of my favorites and I was so glad it didn't retire!!  

I used my "Color Spritzer Tool" and added a bit of Elegant Eggplant and Melon Mambo to the background just to give it some color.  The white background would have been just fine but I had gotten a couple of smudges on the card and had to hide them!!!  And it worked !!!!!

I did have fun making this card.  I LOVE to color!  And it was a quick card to do too!

I thank you SO much for stopping by today,
