Anyway enough of my neurosis, on with my creation. lol So in leu off "our" birthday, I wanted to make a birthday card with our month color ... Amethyst.
I really like this designer paper from SU!, Cottage Wall. It makes it easier to use corresponding colors because it has lots to work with. I used a basic white cardstock for the base the card, then SU! in color Rich Razzleberry for a dark base, followed by Orchid opulence and Old olive.
For the centerpiece of the card I used my spellbinder for the cirlce scallop edge, and for the two circle pieces I used the Circle scissor plus. The butterflies and the flowers stencils came with my purchase of the spellbinder, so I really wanted to add it to this piece. For the sentiment I used a double sided piece from last years SU! catalog called Birthdays count, part of their under $10 promotions where it contained the verse and the happy birthday at the bottom of the card. Thanks again for visiting and I hope you like it. Tooddles.
