Aaarrrgghhh!!  Blogger ate up all my scheduled posts.  I thought I would be clever and have my posts all ready to go, so all I would have to do is click share.  Sadly they disappeared and now I have to re-think and try to remember my 'witty' posting!!

And of course, I can't!!  So instead I'm going to show you a birthday card I made for one of my close friends.  The card was inspired by a SU project, so I just had to convert to my style and with my stamps on hand ... French Foliage!

I've gone for quite a different colour combination for me!  Cajun Craze, Summer Starfruit, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake, with the Paris postmarks stamped in Gumball Green.

I've added a little ribbon detail for interest, using lace, Pool Party ruffled ribbon and hemp twine, fastened in place with a mini brad.

I've cut and added a leaf stamped in Gumball Green for interest.  It sits just over the ribbon detail with a little bit popped up with a dimensional.  You'll also see a bit of double stamping too, where I've stamped the image twice without reinking. 

The card base uses Cajun Craze a lovely colour but not one that I've used often.... until now!

Stamps: French Foliage
Inks: Cajun Craze, Summer Starfruit, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake, Gumball Green & black
Papers: Whisper White & Cajun Craze CS
Accessories: mini-brads, ribbon, twine & lace.
