A Love & Sympathy Birthday Card

I love to find stamp sets that you can step out of the box with and use for other occasions as well.  Here I used the "Love & Sympathy" set but I used a birthday sentiment instead.  It now became a pretty, soft and subtle birthday card.

I used the decorative paper from the Lullaby pack.  Once again I used an image that I didn't much care for but once I was done with it, I did like it.

For the flower I used Pistachio Pudding and Hello Honey markers on the rubber stamp.  I huffed on it and stamped the image.  I trimmed it up a bit and then added the layers.

Then I punched a round Hello Honey scalloped circle, and a 1-3/8" round Pistachio Pudding circle.  The words are from my computer.  I do sell the words in my web store. This PDF download file contains 10 greetings that will fit in a 1=1/4" circle punch and layer them on top of another circle or on top of a scalloped circle.  Some of them even fit in the oval punch.  The greetings include: Thinking of You, Thank You, Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, With Sympathy, Get Well, Merry Christmas, Happy Father's Day, Happy Mother's Day, and Be Mine.  There are 24 greetings on each page.  You can print out as many pages as you wish and use them in cards you make to give away or even on cards you make to sell.   I print them out and punch half of them out. I put the rest in envelopes for safe keeping.  It's nice to have some already punched out for when I need a quick card.  
Anyway, this card was very easy to do and I did like making it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
