Another Birthday card

My share today is another card that I made for a cousin's birthday, this time it was for my cousin Jennifer, whose birthday was last week. I have a LOT of cousins as my Dad was  of 14 children!

 It was made using the beautiful "Natural Composition" speciality paper from the Annual catalogue, I love this pack that comes with gorgeous pre-heat embossed images, it's perfect for so many things and makes wonderful boxes and gift bags as well as adding a beautiful layer on, what is in fact, a very simple card.

I stamped the sentiment from the "Perfectly Penned" stamp set onto the Cotton Ribbon that is in the current Autumn/Winter catalogue - this catalogue retires on the 31st January, so if you want anything from that catalogue, please get in contact as soon as possible!

As the outside of the card was so quick and simple, I decorated the inside too.  I used the bloom image from the stamp set "Betsy's Blossoms" which I think matches the images on the "Natural Composition" beautifully, the butterfly image and the butterflies on the front of the card are from the "Papillon Potpourri" stamp set, with the butterflies on the front punched out with the "Elegant Butterfly" punch,  the smaller butterfly images on the inside was punched our with a new punch called "Bitty Butterfly" which is in the new Spring/Summer catalogue that comes out on 1st Feburary.

The sentiment I used on the inside is from the "Blooming with Kindness" stamp set, which is one of my favourites of the new ones in the current Annual catalogue.

I kept the colour palette simple, just "Raspbery Ripple", "Crumb Cake" and "Perfect Plum".  I got this trio of colours from my "Colour Coach" which is such a wonderful source of colour combinations.

Hope you have a wonderful day, and if you have any questions about any products on this or any of the projects I share with you, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
