Happiest Birthday

Today is my daughter Meredith's birthday. But she's in New Jersey awaiting the completion of paperwork so she can bring their newly adopted infanthome. Karis was born Monday morning (January 16) at 1:38 AM and weighed in at 7 pounds, 1 ounce. What an exciting time! Obviously, it will be a little late when Meredith receives this birthday card. Although this might be too flowery for her taste, but I just love it! Everything but the basic card stock and inks is from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

I just love the Twitterpated dsp and think the Apothecary Art stamp set coordinates beautifully with it. In fact, I think that even the Tea Shoppe stamp set coordinates well with it and you will soon see a card or two posted using that set. Of course, the Bordering on Romance stamp set was designed as part of the Twitterpated Product Suite and I did use that set as well in designing this card. And using the Apothecary Art stamp set meant I just had to use the Labels Collection of Framelits Dies!

I used the Blender Pens with Island Indigo and Blushing Bride Classic Stampin' Pads to color in the flowers on the border. But I used Stampin' Write Markers to color the stamp from the Apothecary Art stamp set (Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz, and Riding Hood Red). I then colored the flowers on that image with the Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker. The greeting is a separate stamp in the set that was stamped with Riding Hood Red ink.

One of the new line of products in this catalog is the Edgelits Dies. They even have coordinating Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, although I didn't use them on this particular card. But I did use the Edgelit Die from the Adorning Accents set on both the dsp and the Island Indigo card stock. And the "scrap" remaining after cutting the Twitterpated designer series paper was a perfect addition to the flap of my envelope!
