Painted Season, Southern Serenade, Birthday Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

Oh no, only one more day and all the fun Sale-a-Bration sets will be retired.  I didn't play with the frog set enough.  And there's other ones I didn't pay much attention to.  I will end up putting them in my web store. I just can't hang onto retired sets anymore. My workroom is getting too full. I will let you know when they go in the store.  It will be a little while because it takes time to take the photo, weigh the package, get all that info and measurements put in the web store so by the time you see it, it's just a paragraph with a link to purchase!  

Today's card comes to you from the "Painted Seasons" Sale-a-Bration set and the "Painted Seasons" 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.  I found the card on Pinterest.  I didn't have the ribbon that was used on the original card, so I made a few little changes and got the card to work for me!

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the "Painted Seasons" DSP.  That will be retiring too after tomorrow.
I took a scrap piece of Whisper White and stamped the flower from the "Painted Season" set using Poppy Parade ink.  I colored the center of the flower with the Early Espresso marker.  I fussy cut the image out. I did not invest in the die cuts. 

I cut a 4" x 2" piece of Whisper White card stock and after setting the flower on the left side, I could determine where I wanted to stamp the leaf.  I used Shaded Spruce to stamp it.  I didn't have the Call Me Clover ink pad, I didn't invest in any of the in colors this time around.  It was too big of an expense for me.  After stamping the leaf, I stamped the words from the "Southern Serenade" set.  I love the font.  It seemed to fit well with the flowers.  I set that panel in place on the card using Dimensionals.

Next I set the flower in place with Dimensionals and I added a few pearls. Oh, I also colored in the center of the flower with Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle, and of course it doesn't show up in the photo.  And that was it.  This was a very quick card to make and a great way to use up some DSP!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
