I’ve been crazy busy training to walk the Camino de Santiago in June so I haven’t had time for “creating” but I really need some “craft” therapy so I hopped on Pinterest and found this super simple, elegant birthday card I could make posted by Terry Gaines…thanks Terry!

This gorgeous Petal Promenade Designer Series paper, stamp set I used for the sentiment “Humming Along and the ribbon will retire after June 1st so if you love it as much as I do better get online and stock up now!

I began with a Petal Pink card base, layered Mossy Meadow card stock under the Petal Promenade DSP,  then added the strip of Gold Foil card stock and the ribbon before adhering it to the card base.

The sentiment is from the Humming Along stamp set and the flowers inside are from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set which thankfully will be in the new catalog but it will NOT be offered as a bundle for the 10% discount. Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White scrap with Mossy ink and use the Story Label Punch to cut it out. Punch a second label using Mossy Meadow card stock, cut it in half and adhere it to the Whisper White sentiment just above and below the label.

Adhere the sparkly Petal Pink Rhinestone shape for that little touch of glimmer, stamp a piece of Whisper White card stock with the floral stamp using Mossy Meadow ink, adhere on the inside and you are done!
