A Cup of Blooms for A Birthday

How about sending out a lovely cup of blooms for a birthday? It’s time to play at Festive Friday – Home of the Inspo List!

For this week’s challenge, we are inspired by National Eat What You Want Day. Remember, at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate or make a card for the occasion featured. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I used birthday, gingham and twine to create my card. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card features the new Cup of Tea bundle.  What could be more fun than receiving a teacup filled with bright blooms in shades of Crushed Curry and Sweet Sorbet for your birthday?  Of course, the sentiment can easily be switched out to celebrate a variety of occasions, especially if you use the versatile Sending Smiles stamp set.  A Sweet Sorbet designer paper, with a definite retro vibe, pairs perfectly with a Petal Pink gingham pattern. Of course, the Starry Sky teacup, with its Tahitian Tide overlay, steals the show.
