Artistic Birthday

It's so much fun to have brand new colors and stamp sets to work with!  Here's a card I made for a very special friend and customer, Phyl Lyons, to celebrate her birthday.  Hope your day was filled with fun, friends, family and fond memories, Phyl!

Everything on this card is brand-spankin' new!  I received my Stampin' Up! order at 3:00PM and by 4:30PM had made two cards with all my loot!  This one features Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight — all brand new Core Colors for 2010-11!  The designer paper is from a beautiful pack called Greenhouse Gala.  This is the perfectly designed package of paper — one side of the paper features a bold floral or stripe, the other side a soft muted tone-on-tone paper.  You'll have so many options with this great set of papers!  I stamped the Eiffel Tower image from Artistic Impressions stamp set — this versatile set is sure to be a favorite this year.  The sentiment is from Watercolor Trio stamp set, featured in the Summer Mini Catalog.  The paper gets some aging by crumpling it up then spritzing on Early Espresso using a Stampin' Write Marker along with the Color Spritzer Tool, as well as some Silver Foil Smooch Spritz.  And notice our pretty new ribbons?  We'll be carrying a new 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon which comes in 13 different colors!

I'm enjoying adding a little something to the envelope and the inside of my cards.  Simply carry over some aspects of the card front for that extra "wow"!  (I had written a personal message to Phyl before I remembered to take a picture, so I covered it up temporarily.)
