A Morning Meadow Birthday

Today I was at Ingrid's "The Creative Grove" blog and found a fun card to copy!!!  I loved the colors she used on this card.  The Coastal Cabana is such a soft summery color.  And the Crisp Cantaloupe is such a nice complementing color.  My card is a little different than Ingrid's.  I added different words in an oval and the oval scallop.  I could not find the direct link to her card and I did spend a few minutes trying to search for it.  She has some fun cards on her blog that are worth taking a look at. 

The base of this card is Whisper White.  The first layer is Coastal Cabana and the top layer is a piece of Whisper White and it was textured using the Modern Mosaic embossing folder.  The stamp sets used here are "Mosaic Madness" and "Express Yourself" for the words.

Punches used here are the Mosaic punch, the tiny flower punch, an oval punch and the scalloped oval punch.  

I used Coastal Cabana ink instead of VersaMark.  I like the look of matching ink on the cardstock.  It shows up a bit darker than the VersaMark does.  Plus it's easier to wash off my stamp.  

I not only found this to be easy to make but pleasing to the eye too.  These colors go so well together.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
